I'm not great at minding the details, sometimes. I am trying to become more detail oriented. Any tips on how to accomplish this?

Slow down.
Most people forget the small things because they’re racing to finish everything so quickly. Make lists of everything you need to do, cross them off as you complete them.

Hire an assistant that is detail oriented. Yippy are who you are. You can get better, but only so much.

Agenda out an entire meeting process, as if you were trying to teach an inexperienced person what to do. Write a few sentences showing how you plan to act, what you hope to accomplish in the meeting, and what that will mean for the next step with the client. When it's all done, go back and compare what you planned vs. what happened. Pay attention to the differences between your plan and reality, unexpected outcomes, special notes, and interesting points that you can use for later. Everything different is your details, and you just forced yourself to realize it by simply framing a baseline and comparing.

For your practice, hire a detail oriented assistant.
For you: write notes during meetings, then add them into a good Contact Management System. Examples: if I tell a client I'm going to follow up with them on 3 or 6 months, I set a task to do that. If I send off paperwork to be reviewed, I set a note foor two weeks to follow up.
The details matter, but I can't do it without help.

Everlast Rocketbook notepad. It is a notepad that you can write on, and scan with your phone, and it automatically sends a pdf of your notes to your e mail or Dropbox file. It’s a lifesaver for anyone who struggles with having too many loose pages floating around their office
