Low attention to detail really means one of two things:
1. “I don’t care enough about this task that I’m doing to make sure its done well.”
2. “I’m so amazing that I don’t need to check my work.”
In case of #1, find something that you care about or revisit the motivations for doing this specific task. e.g. if its a job that you don’t enjoy, what does doing the job enable you to do? Mediate on that.
In case of #2, get off your high horse and check your work when you’re done. You’ll save yourself the pain of redoing work or bad outcomes.
I started in category #2 years ago. I still struggle a bit with it but in general have now much better attention to detail.
Its just a matter of focus.
