No… But… I tend to take too long trying to get things right.
Sounds a lot like a perfectionist I guess. Especially when I am rarely satisfied with outcomes.
Well that is a bit of a lie. I work hard to get things right and then at some point achieve my aim. I take satisfaction from that.
Obsessions over getting things just right is something I am fighting hard to lessen. Particularly with work. It is far too easy to waste a lot of time ‘perfecting’ something that would be fine as it is.
A great piece of advice I learnt last year was to spend one hour getting something 70% right and workable rather than spending four hours to get something 100% right.
Guess that applies here.
I have been much more productive by following that simple view.
So am I a perfectionist?
Well I’ve quickly typed this on my phone while sat in the sun on my patio enjoying good coffee this sunny Sunday morning … I’m not going to read over it … I’d rather sit back and enjoy the sun!
