Devil’s In The Details

Easy to mistaken knowing with doing. “Sure I know how to do it” is different from” yes, I have done it.”  Because knowing is not doing.

Having the knowledge is different than having the skills from actually done it.  Because devil is in the details.  Actual hands-on experience reveals nuances that would otherwise remain hidden. By working through the details is how one acquires the skill.

I learn this first hand from working on cars.  Invariably, after I thought I knew how to do it, I get stuck on one tough piece that would not budge.  The solution could be a tool, a part, or taking the car to a mechanic – either way a learning opportunity.

So, go ahead face the devil and tackle the details.  It is the surest way to gain the experience and increase your credibility.
