Details, My Brother

We pay attention to the big stuff…When you are planning a wedding, you book the reception hall; Buying a house, you go to the bank; want to hire a new employee, you get resumes.  But what about the little things, the details, that sometimes can sabotage your project.

One of my elder fraternity brothers would tell us all the time:

DETAILS, my brother!

He would say this whenever we did not focus on the small stuff, and just accepted things not being 100% correct.  We were willing to pass off something as being perfect, but it was not.  Our thinking,

Its small, no one will notice.

Maybe this is true.  But realistically, a project or task can fail miserably if a minor detail is missed.  Just think if an airplane mechanic uses, for instance, 9 bolts on the landing gear instead of the standard 10.  Or, a construction contractor who uses flat paint instead of the promised egg-shell.  Minor details to cut costs or to just get done may seem minor, but may have a major impact on either your success, or the perception that people have of you.

Don’t let the small details consume you, but also don’t pass them by.  Get those done with the same diligence as the major tasks.

Kontinue to Konker.
