Pay Attention to the Details

by seo on January 7, 2010

Career Mission’s Chief Executive Officer, A. Harrison Barnes, in a webinar as he illustrated how details play an important role in whichever profession you are.

Harrison feels that whether it is a professional athlete, a waitress, a teacher, or even a Hollywood star’s representative, success almost always comes only to those who pay attention to the details. He believes that one of the most important things you can do for yourself in your career, business or life is to look after the details. This is borne out by some of the most successful people you see in any field. Most successful people are very informed when it comes to the details regarding anything that concerns them. If it is about food, they are usually highly aware about what they eat, how they eat it and in what combinations.

The pursuit of details is particularly significant for the job seeker. When hunting for a job, you should look at details that are typically overlooked by others. To begin with, start looking for jobs in a place that is not frequented by too many other people. This move by itself can substantially reduce the competition you may face in your job search. Research the job details well and make an application to the right person. Once you finish applying, make sure you follow up; following up is a detail that most people miss out on. Details are equally important if you are signing a contract. You should make sure you are aware of what the fine print says, else it could hit you when you least expect it to.
