I was watching a video the other day where someone was talking about standards, minimum expectations, and what was needed to develop a successful culture. The person was filmed with some windows in the background and all I remember was how dirty the windows were and how many dirty hand and finger marks were all over the glass.
I was listening to a podcast where the speakers were talking about why the sound quality was so important. The sound had echo and internet whistles and buzzes and I was so distracted I turned the podcast off.
I was reading a briefing the other day and there was a repeated spelling error which made it difficult to concentrate on what was being written. I mentally corrected every misspelt word which made the reading of the article tiresome and dull.
It might be a little thing to you, something barely noticeable, but some people will pick up on those little things.
Just make sure they don’t distract.

The phrase “Death by PowerPoint” comes to mind too.
