This is extremely difficult for me as I am very much a 10,000 foot guy! I am horrible with details, just ask my fiancé. She’ll tell you so!! That being said, I also find that when I can take a moment to sit down and relax, the details are a little easier to manage, which funny enough is the actual message of that book in the first place. Maybe that’s why I have to re-re-read this book so many times!!
Well – I guess the point today is to be sure that you are sweating the details (the small stuff). If you are a sales person, be sure to make the extra call to the client and confirm what you think is the buy. If you are a planner, be sure to call the client and review the details. If you are a manager, don’t be afraid to ask questions of the people in your office. You never look dumb asking questions. You only look dumb when you gloss them by!
