This is my biggest failing I’m afraid. My solution is easy.  I employ someone to manage my life; someone who takes care of the detail - someone who is very, very good at the detail. Yes, it’s an expensive way to do it. Better to train yourself right from the word go to pay attention to the detail yourself and save the expense.



Detail is not keeping a note of every tiny purchase you make and looking at minute economies - we’ve already discovered (see Rule 32 on Asabeafrika) going without that cappuccino .isn’t going to make you rich beyond your wildest dreams. Detail is:
• Checking the small print
• Checking the interest rates
• Checking charges and fees                              .
• Checking you pay for things on time so you don’t incur penalties
• Checking when you will be paid and that you invest promptly to avoid your money lying idle
• Not forgetting people
• Not forgetting dates, times and appointments
• Making lists and writing everything down
• Remembering to ask for information
• Remembering to ask questions in general
• Remembering to keep good records of all transactions, and purchases and sales. 

“When you are in training for any Sport, if you repeat an action often enough your muscles retain the memory of that action. The more you repeat the action the easier it gets and the less effort you need to put in”.

This is just muscle training. I take it you know all about muscle training? When you are in training for any Sport, if you repeat an action often enough your muscles retain the memory of that action. The more you repeat the action the easier it gets and the less effort you need to put in.
It’s a bit like driving a car, tough at first but it becomes automatic (excuse pun) after a while. I am writing this in France and I have been getting used to (a) driving on the right and (b) driving a left-hand-drive car. I’ve had to concentrate hard and shout at the children because I can’t think if they are beating seven bells out of each other in the back seat. It’s been a bit like learning to drive all over again. Added to the fact that all the signs are in French and it’s a steep learning curve. But it’s getting easier and becoming routine. I don’t have to think about it any more and can take in the passing scenery and enjoy the journey.
