We waste time by doing a lot of little things wrong, or we take them for granted. You're trying to convince an employer of your discipline and production. You're misplacing phone numbers, forgetting names, and missing appointments. You are losing the job search game. People will say,"... don't sweat the little stuff." But it's the little stuff obstructing the correct view of us that is making us look clumsy and incompetent. That's why details matter.
