When is it good enough?


It took me a long time, but I eventually realized that being a “Perfectionist” at work is impossible, as there is ALWAYS something else I can do to make things better.  My brain works in a way that I have to outline every step of the project before I am comfortable enough to begin.  There’s nothing worse than starting something when I don’t have everything ready to finish it.


Someone finally got me to realize that my 80% complete is probably better than most people’s 100% complete.  I also realized that you could never get to the 5th step on your project unless you start with step #1.  To steal from Nike, Just Do It!  Start your project because there will be time to work on the next steps later.  Procrastination is a lot harder when you are willing to take one step at a time.
