THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS
"How you do anything is how you do everything."
- I have no idea who said this
Oh the details. Tiny, nagging, little buggers. When I was in law school, one of my favorite classes was advance trial practice. The very last mock trial of the year I got up and summoned the theater Gods and I gave one of the most spectacular performances of my life. To this day I have no idea what the case was about but I sure as hell made sure the jurors wept with impassioned tears. However, when I ended, the judge stopped me and said, “Bryce, that was quite a performance but you’re missing one very crucial part…THE FACTS!” Ohhh, yes, the details.
"How you do anything is how you do everything." I mean that’s pretty much it. Just think about it. I gave my heart to that trial but not my soul. I decided not to do 50% of the work. I glossed over the part of the work that I thought was unimportant (like who stabbed who) and my grades reflected it. They were not stellar. Think about all the little things we gloss over in life because they seem unimportant. This is an incredibly useful tool for those who want to shift their lives in a different direction. Because the details matter. They have this incredible force behind them. You are telling the Universe you care, that this life matters, and you will honor it by backing it with your energy and your soul. Then the shift begins. Magic!
What are the details you are skipping over that you think don’t matter?
Here might be a few: How you treat yourself. Your overall health. How you treat others. How you treat your gums. How frequently you workout. How hard you work to pursue a dream. How you do the dishes. How present you are in conversations. How much you can love.
It really is that simple. The details matter and when we start paying attention to them, EVERYTHING will kick in high gear because you are telling the Universe,
“Hey, I get it! I love you! Now put that red dress on and let's tango.”
HOW YOU DO ANYTHING IS HOW YOU DO EVERYTHING! Now go dance with the Universe and twirl it through the heavens.
