If everthing else works ok (no skipping or jumping) and it just does not want to go into the small cog, you should try to clean or replace the shifter cable.

Sometimes the spring in the rear derailer can not overcome the friction from the crud that gets built up on the cable. The small cog position is were the spring in the r.d. (unless you have a dual spring r.d.) has its least pulling power.
