Do you give attention to detail? If not, you no-doubt realize that you need someone on your side who is detail oriented. Last month, I spoke with someone who was honest enough to mention that she wasn’t detail oriented. She was also sensible enough to realize that she needed someone on her team who was. Very wise lady and she prompted me to think about this.
Why is it so important? Most people who give attention to detail take deadlines seriously. Your typical Type C personality type is detail oriented. In addition to this, you will find a type C to be practical, logical, fair, and systematic. Accuracy and thinking through a problem is also important.
Those who give attention to detail enjoy seeing projects through to completion. They consider a peaceful work environment, without conflict, a must.
Let’s Consider the Reverse
It’s true, there are many who get the job done without giving much attention to detail. They are sometimes called the one who “gets it done.” This may be true to some extent. And there is a time and place for this. There are times when you need to roll up your sleeves and get it done.
At the same time, when someone stays in this mode, they often lose quality of service. They tend to look at moving a product rather than considering how a product will benefit a client. This is crucial to customer satisfaction – considering the client.
Are You Fragmented???
Perhaps, you realize that you are scattered. It’s important to know that being fragmented doesn’t necessarily mean that you are not successful. There are successful fragmented business owners. At the same time, is it possible that your efforts would be even more productive if you paid a bit more attention to detail?
What to Look For
