Attending To The Details
Once we have set our intention, it’s no bad thing to hone in on the details.To focus on sweating the small stuff does serve a purpose, if we use it in the right way, at the right time.
Firstly it ensures that the business, work, or service we provide is of the high standard we would expect from others on our own behalf. It means we know the ins and outs of what we do intimately. It shows that we have a passion for our purpose and that we hold it in high regard. This, in turn, encourages others to hold what we do in high regard too.
Taking pleasure in getting the details right also serves to distract us from our end goal in a positive way. When we spend too much time in the future, we are missing being in the present. When we are not here in the present we miss the opportunities that are here right now. If we miss what is presented to us in the here and now, and stick rigidly to our end game then it might not be the end game that us actually needed.
We always need the agility to move with what is really needed here in the moment. If we are looking ahead at what we perceive we will need, then we might just miss the joy and achievements gained by identifying the solution sought right now.
So, keep enjoying attending to the details, they will teach you so much.
