Power of precision

The more precise you are, the more successful you’ll be. While a vague objective may point you in a good direction, a detailed, specific goal enables you to achieve exactly what you seek.

Ambiguity is a breeding ground for excuses and negligence. Precision, on the other hand, compels you to make a commitment and to stick with it.

Precision communicates confidence and competence to yourself and to others. Precision creates and enforces high standards.

Precision facilitates understanding and cooperation at the most profound and practical levels. Precision can detect both accidental mistakes and intentional deceptions before they cause widespread damage.

It’s important to pay attention to the big picture. Yet to actually achieve that big picture you must also focus on getting the specific details right.

Think precisely, speak precisely, act precisely. Utilize the power of precision in all you do.
