There are many detail things in life. Often, very many. The first thing to do is to determine which ones are really important to you and which ones are not. Probably one does not have enough ability to be on top of every little thing that affects you, not do you want expend the effort of trying. Though, do remember that often a set of small things sum up into something large.
That said, how does one handle small things? Do them yourself or get others (e.g. S.O. or children) to do them. If they are important, make it so. Don’t be naggy or whiny. It is a bad look upon a fella, as it shows that one is not even in control of the simple things.
It is said that a secret to success is showing up. Perhaps there is truth there. Another secret to success after you show up is to make sure the important little details are attended to.
