Many us of have heard the saying, “…don’t sweat the small stuff…”, especially when we are very busy and stress levels are seemingly rising very quickly. While there is definitely a “balancing act” of determining what is truly important and what is not, many times the “small stuff or little things” can be the difference between success and failure.
I firmly believe that “paying attention to the details” and presenting yourself as a consummate “professional” can carry a tremendous amount of weight when it comes to the perception or reputation of yourself or the company you represent. It has been my experience that paying close attention to the little things provide a more comprehensive understanding and knowledge of a particular subject than if you choose to only focus on the bigger or more appealing tasks/jobs.
With the beginning of the college and pro football seasons just around the corner, training camps and pre-season practices are in full swing. As the teams begin to develop a type of cohesiveness or “chemistry”, it is the very small details that many times will provide either an outcome of victory or defeat. Offense, defense, and special teams must all work together, understand their assignments/roles, and be willing to sometimes sacrifice personal achievement for the betterment of the entire team. In other words, doing the little things “consistently” right have a positive impact over the course of a long season. Everyone plays a part, just like successful teams in the business world.
No detail is too small or unimportant when EXCELLENCE is desired!
That’s the bottomline…
“Change…Part Nature…Part Opportunity”
