How You Do Anything, Is How You Do Everything!

I invite you to think about this statement for a moment, “How you do anything, is how you do everything”. Does this resonate as true for you? Or in your mind is it absolute poppycock?

The first time I heard that statement was around 2000 at a seminar called the Millionaire Mind Intensive by T . Harv Eker. Based on where I was in my own personal journey of self discovery, I remember sort of agreeing with it. But, I didn’t really 100% buy into the overall concept, as I still had lingering tentacles of “victim mentality” I was really not ready to take on complete ownership of my life. (Ownership occurred a little later on in my journey.)

Around that time in my life I had this rather egoic notion of myself, that I was not only a freaking awesome guy, I was an expert in just about everything. I hadn’t really come to grips with the fact that not everyone thought I was the smartest knife in the drawer, or that I didn’t know everything.

Pretending to know EVERYTHING was a great and convenient way to hide my insecurities around not knowing everything. But that conversation is for another blog and another day! 🙂

So back to the statement, “How you do anything, is how you do everything.” For me this statement is true! I am not a huge details person. When I have 70% or 80% of the info, I can make a decision. Sometimes I can make a decision with even less information. Which means I rely on past experiences and gut instincts a lot. Which also means when I am holding conversations with a minute details person, you may see my eyes glaze over and roll back into my sockets. I am NOT a details person.

Knowing and coming to that understanding has helped me out immensely. Grammar and punctuation are not huge in my wheelhouse. That’s why other people edit my work. I need to be competent enough that my writings are compelling or interesting. But, I don’t need to know all the rules of proper grammar verbatim. That is best left to those who have that skill set!

Are you a details person, or are you less detailed? Or does it depend on the topic that you are on whether you are details oriented (specialist) or are you a generalist? Do you make decisions with minimal information or do you need to read and understand the fine print in a contract?
