That phrase was passed on by a friend at a networking meeting last week.
It’s a powerful thought.
We were talking about a restaurant that’d been given a poor rating, just because of some minor inattention to detail. It had something to do with how tidy an out of the way part of the restaurant had been when inspected.
But as my friend pointed out, the way you do ‘anything’ is the way you do ‘everything’.
Maybe that restaurant didn’t pay attention to detail in the kitchen in just the same way that they didn’t keep every nook and cranny tidy. You might reasonably expect that their attitude to how things are done was consistent.
It’s a challenge to make sure the processes you create and manage are solid. But the real winners, both companies and individuals, are – in my experience – the ones who pay very close attention to detail, all the time.
The way they do everything can be understood by observing how they do anything.
