Here’s a quick tip that I shared with a group that I worked with this week. It’s about doing the best you can, no matter what you’re doing.
It comes from a quote that I learned from my business coach Fabienne Fredrickson. Here it is:
“How you do anything is how you do everything.”
Simple, yet profound. What it means is that if you are sloppy in one area of your work, you are probably sloppy in every area of your work. If you are detail-oriented with one thing, you’re probably detail-oriented in everything you do.
I use this to catch myself doing something I don’t really want to do, like taking shortcuts or procrastinating. When I catch myself, I ask myself where else am I doing this? There’s usually somewhere.
Take some time to think about this and how it might apply to you and your work.
