“Sweating the details is more important than anything else.”
Who said it: Indra Nooyi, CEO of Pepsico
“To sweat” something means to worry about it. This is because when we worry, we often sweat. For example, the informal phrase “Don’t sweat it” means don’t worry about it.
“Sweating the details” means to take care of all the small details rather than overlook them.
This quote by Nooyi means that in order to be successful or to grow a company, you need to look after all of the small details. It’s those small things that will make or break you.
