Paying attention to details

Often simplest thing causes the biggest problems. So we need to be careful and attentive to small details in order to avoid peril. Meticulousness is a trait of genius. The philosophy of giving attention to every little details comes from this very basic understanding of genius and peril. And for entrepreneurs meticulousness is a must have characteristic. You need to look into every small details of your product, service, culture and everything around you in order to make healthy decision, generate ideas; create great design and so on.

A chair is a not a mere chair. It involves hundreds of components, measurements, and conscious decisions. Unless you look at it with a perspective you can’t see it. To make a chair first you have to decide which item to use: wood, or plastic or steel or a mixture. Then you need to decide about the size, comfortably, design, look, usability, space, chair back, flair, coated base, PP base, placement, color, mobility, gas lift, cost, armrest, armrest type and so on. But it happens when we look at a chair we just see a chair. But the most important thing to see is what it takes to make a chair!!

We make mistakes, irremediable and damaging, just because we look at the flesh instead of bones and tissues. We look at colors instead of components and bits of colors. To live a good life and make precious decisions we need to understand that red is not red at all!!

The advantage of looking into details is that it will lift your accuracy and reduce propensity of your demise while making decisions. It’ll help you to find unusual combination among apparently distinct things.

Life is a journey of countless decisions. We make decisions in every single moment. Sometime we make good decision sometime bad. And accuracy of our decisions decides the destination of our life. The art and science of making good decision is having a meticulous mind and ability to see things in-details.
