How to Master the Details
While the “big picture” is always important to recognize, it’s the smaller details that are going to determine how successful you will be in any business venture. The big picture would be an attractive, but hollow shell without all of the small details working together to support the bigger vision at its core. Here at Innovision, we believe that every detail is important, and we make sure to focus on every little thing.
Why the Details Matter
Details are incredibly important when it comes to matters of business for so many reasons. First, they help to make sure that you are putting out the best possible project that holds true to your brand. It’s your keen attention to detail that differentiates between something ordinary, and extraordinary. Focusing on the little details early on, can prevent big, future mistakes. We believe it’s always worth it to put in that extra thought to the details, because it ultimately helps later down the line. Being “detail-oriented” is a tough skill to master that doesn’t come second nature for most of us, and that’s okay! Here are some tips to help you see your work through detail-colored glasses.
Organization is Essential to Master the Details
The first thing to do is get organized. Diligently practice your note-taking skills and be sure to write everything down. Don’t let a perfectly good calendar go to waste, fill it with necessary reminders that are going to keep you on top of things. Creating lists can also be a great way to visualize all the potential ways to enhance your creative. Next, try to look at something from all angles and examine all possible options. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and consider the answers. Think about the details and when you think you’re finished, think about them some more.
Details Improve Consumer Relations
Paying attention to the details can also help you to connect personally with consumers. Try to be creative and honest when putting together emails, social media messages, and other marketing tools to build trust with your consumers. This will help them make the decision in choosing your brand over other competitors. To contradict the classic saying, “do sweat the details,” because your consumers will be able to see through a project that is not well thought out. Taking care of the small details will positively affect consumer opinion of your brand and they will appreciate the extra effort made. From writing emails to our creative and content, to our building, we pay close attention to the smallest of details to ensure that nothing is missed so we can produce the best results for our clients.
Limit Distractions and Remain Calm
Distractions in the workplace are inevitable, however, there are ways to minimize them. For example, putting your phone in the drawer or drowning out office chatter with instrumental music are two ways you can limit the distractions around you. The less distracted you are, the more mental energy you can spend focusing on all the specific details that make up the finalized big picture. It’s also a good idea to give yourself breaks periodically to refresh your brain instead of exhausting the same options over and over. Give yourself a chance to recharge when you’re feeling uninspired so you can get back to the details. Don’t hesitate to recruit your detail-obsessed colleagues to review your work to supply comments, critique, and that needed inspiration. While you may think you can handle something on your own, having a fresh pair of eyes can be extremely beneficial, especially after you’ve grown so familiar with the content. The projects you release are the most vital detail essential to painting a colorful picture of your brand, which is then presented to your consumers. Once you become more conscious about the small details, you will start to see major growth in your brand and set yourself apart. Remember, success is in the details.
