“To be really great in little things, to be truly noble and heroic in the insipid details of everyday life, is a virtue so rare as to be worthy of canonization.”
–Harriet Beecher Stowe, American writer
- Whined about totally re-arranging the equipment configuration in our Dreamland Radio studio 20 minutes before an important interview to get a tad better audio quality (The sound quality IS a tad better now.)
- Got annoyed at my business partner’s scowl when we realized I’d forgotten to bring in a new batch of microphone sanitizers, again…
- Re-sent an audio file to a client because the first version still had the pre-show briefing at the front end (Hey, the interview itself at least was edited flawlessly)
- Forgot to stop the pendulum on my prized chime clock which hangs in The YPS Group’s test studio. Of course, it struck 4 exactly in the middle of a client’s perfectly articulated statement.
- Realized I hadn’t returned a client’s phone call at the end of crazy busy day (Talked to him this morning and he said it was no big deal.)
I realize, I’ve still got a long way to go. How many little details did you miss yesterday?
