RULE 56: Pay Attention To Detail

Temmie Amodu, Accomplished Event Planer & Youth Motivator

This is my
biggest failing I’m afraid. My solution is easy.  I employ someone to manage my life; someone
who takes care of the detail – someone who is very, very good at the detail.
Yes, it’s an expensive way to do it. Better to train yourself right from the
word go to pay attention to the detail yourself and save the expense.

Detail is not
keeping a note of every tiny purchase you make and looking at minute economies
– we’ve already discovered (see Rule 32 on Asabeafrika) going without
that cappuccino .isn’t going to make you rich beyond your wildest dreams.
Detail is:
• Checking the
small print
• Checking the
interest rates

Checking charges and fees                              .
• Checking you
pay for things on time so you don’t incur penalties
• Checking when
you will be paid and that you invest promptly to avoid your money lying idle
• Not forgetting
people
• Not forgetting
dates, times and appointments
• Making lists
and writing everything down
• Remembering to
ask for information
• Remembering to
ask questions in general
• Remembering to
keep good records of all transactions, and purchases and sales. 

“When you are in training for any Sport, if you
repeat an action often enough your muscles retain the memory of that action.
The more you repeat the action the easier it gets and the less effort you need
to put in”.

This is just
muscle training. I take it you know all about muscle training? When you are in
training for any Sport, if you repeat an action often enough your muscles
retain the memory of that action. The more you repeat the action the easier it
gets and the less effort you need to put in.
It’s a bit like driving a car, tough at first but it
becomes automatic (excuse pun) after a while. I am writing this in France and I
have been getting used to (a) driving on the right and (b) driving a
left-hand-drive car. I’ve had to concentrate hard and shout at the children
because I can’t think if they are beating seven bells out of each other in the
back seat. It’s been a bit like learning to drive all over again. Added to the
fact that all the signs are in French and it’s a steep learning curve. But it’s
getting easier and becoming routine. I don’t have to think about it any more and
can take in the passing scenery and enjoy the journey.
