There are many important important details at every position whether you are the leader or the person on the production line. When you are the leader, however, the details make all the difference in the world. Learning to focus on the details is very important. When you look closely at the details, you can prevent future failures or problems from occurring.
What are the Details?
So, what do you do every day? If you are anything like me, you probably wake up, go to work, go home, and go to bed.
Okay, so you probably do a lot more than that. A typical day for me starts something like this. I wake up every morning at 5:45 AM when my alarm goes off. Sometimes I hit the snooze button a couple of times before I actually get up, but I am usually out of bed by 6:00 AM. From there, I roll out of bed and jump in the shower. Once I am done showering, I get dressed, fix my hair, and put my contacts in.
I then eat my breakfast which consists of one serving (approx. 3/4 C.) of my favorite breakfast cereal, Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds, and about one cup of milk. As I eat breakfast I go through the emails on my phone and watch the news. I usually finish my breakfast at about 6:30 AM. From there I brush my teeth. Once I am done brushing my teeth, I go outside, get the newspaper, and get in my truck to head to work. The day continues from there…
