Why Perfection Gets In The Way Of Completing Tasks

Focusing on delivering a “perfect” project usually results in cost overruns and missed deadlines. Designing and developing a perfect project requires perfect working environment – something which is seldom found within the complexities of the real world. A perfectionist is often unable to add value to the project, and instead can create stress and tension for co-workers and colleagues working on the same tasks.

Focusing on minute details from the beginning of the project often results in unnecessary delays which might be costly for you or your business. The key is to initially focus on completing the task at hand rather than ensuring that every tiny detail is perfect. Once the project is up and running and the main design is completed, the remaining time can easily be utilized to polish the work and make sure that there are no obvious mistakes. Over-obsession with perfection can prove to be dangerous for you as the task at hand might never get completed, and you might end up losing interest in that project altogether.

Perfectionists are usually obsessed with ensuring that no mistakes are made during the course of the task and a typist can be a perfect example of a perfectionist. If you’re a touch typist then you’re working without actually glancing at the keyboard, which means the slightest mistake you see on the screen might make you feel obliged to erase the data immediately and rewrite it, rather than continuing on with your typing. However, even if you don’t make lots of mistakes, it might be more efficient to wait until you’re finished, and then go back through and correct all the mistakes at the same time. This will give you the chance to review grammar and word choices as well. In addition, you can let the spelling and grammar checkers generally available in the word processing program help you with this task, rather than staying on the “perfectionist” side of the issue and believing that you have to do all the corrections yourself, without relying on outside help. Such a perfectionist attitude might actually result in more effort and time being expended during a task than would otherwise have been required.

This by no means indicates that “getting it done” is always better than striving for perfection. It simply means that the last few hours, minutes, or days of the project development cycle can be used to rectify mistakes, and the initial focus must be to lay the foundation and convert the ideas into action.
