“Excellence in the details brings quality to the results.” #bgdtcoaching.
It seems the old saying “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well” no longer applies in many instances today. We can encounter service providers in all manner of jobs who at best are merely ‘going through the motions’, rather than offering excellence in the details.
Yet there are examples of companies and their staff still interested in living up to their full potential. Excellence in the details is found in the work of sole traders who go the extra mile, retailers and restaurateurs who do everything to ensure the customer returns, and professionals prepared and willing to make each interaction an experience to be remembered.
Rather than me filling this post with personal examples, why not spend a few moment recalling a transaction, encounter or exchange in which excellence in the details was present for you?
And what about a time when you gave your all, did your best and put excellence in the details? I imagine you enjoyed being your full self, no? But here’s the catch. We are only able to do it when we are fully present, attuned to the moment. And how often does that occur on a daily basis?
Please feel free to join the conversation here by leaving a comment below. In the meantime, thanks for reading this ‘Excellence in the details‘ post today.
