Everything Counts

As your career mentor, I’m always looking for great content to share.

Today I have a guest post by Gary Ryan Blair, my friend and author of the awesome book Everything Counts!

Check it out…

A moment’s thought reveals that our entire world is simply an accumulation of tiny details.

Every action – every detail of our lives – has bottom-line repercussions, and it’s dangerous and derogatory to think of any of those details as trivial, unimportant, or inconsequential.

You may be familiar with the old nursery rhyme which teaches this principle to children:

For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

Downplaying small details, dismissing them as minutia – can and oftentimes will sabotage the biggest goal or project you can conceive.

Ultimately, the key to quality and excellence in every aspect of our lives is doing little things correctly – all the time, every time – so that each action produces a quality result.

When every nitty-gritty detail is lovingly attended to, and each step in the process is given complete and careful attention, the result inevitably will be of the highest quality.

Make your name and reputation synonymous with excellence, and you do that by making sure…

Everything Counts!
