“You must be in the medical field,” My doctor said as he flipped through my indexed and cross-referenced binder of medical tests.
“No, since we only have 15 minutes…
I just wanted you focused on my problem, not shuffling through a disarray of papers and lab work.”
Being strategic often means diving into the details and nuances of a project.
In fact, understanding the nuances and “weeds” is an important step I like to take before ever delegating anything to someone else. This way, I can coach them from experience, and I can’t be BS’ed about how long something takes or how hard it is.
God is in the details.
And the details are in the weeds.
Another HT to Seth Godin for getting me to ponder “caring” and “trying” in general.
