Frenchify Your Friday – Number 39

French inspiration - precision at its finest.

Whether they are running some of the world’s fastest trains or shaping some of the most recognisable trees on the planet, there is a whole lot to admire about the French dedication to precision and quality.

I love how the French go above and beyond when it comes to the fine details. Let’s take French dining as an example. Only the very best food. Perfectly pressed, bright white linen. Gleaming glassware. World class wine. It is the respect for the specifics that makes the whole experience special.

In my mind, the French attention to ‘getting things just right’ is beyond compare.

Which is why I’m recommending that this week, you Frenchify Your Friday by getting things right.

Promised you’ll deliver something for a colleague? Take some time to make sure you’ve covered every contingency. Having friends over for dinner? Use your best cutlery – and take a moment to polish it. Wrapping a present? Make that package as gorgeous as you possibly can.

Precision. Quality. Detail. An impressive way to bring a little bit of French inspiration to your Friday.

All the best for an amazing day.

Until next time – au revoir.
