Many of us are perfectionists in our own right. You set high bars for yourself and people around you: your family, you co-workers. You spend a great amount of time to maintain your high personal standards. Our passion for excellence drives us to run the extra mile, never stopping, never relenting. And this dedication towards perfection undoubtedly helps us achieve some results, but what if you get carried away with perfectionism? You become disgruntled and discouraged when you fail to meet the very often impossibly high standards you set for yourself. You stop taking on new challenges. The truth is that the real world doesn’t reward perfectionists.
It rewards people who get things done.
The only way to get things done is to be imperfect most of the time. Imperfect, but good enough. So make a decision. Take action, learn from the outcome, and repeat this method over and over again in all walks of life.
