We often confuse productivity as getting more work done. But that’s not the case always. Sometimes less is more. Being a perfectionist has plenty of setbacks in comparison to that positive aspects.
For example, you might be under confident to delegate your tasks, mark a few tasks as unimportant, stress out a lot in the pursuit of over delivering. You also tend to feel intrigued when you wouldn’t be consistent in regard to your habits.
on a personal front this might squabble with your relationships. On a professional front you might not be able to clearly set your goals under focus on them with a sportive mindset. This can cause a lot of trouble when you fail, causing anxiety and depression.
Everyone should understand that there is nothing called perfection. There is always a bigger fish in the tank. You are goal shouldn’t be chasing the fish you should look into the bigger picture and decide what you need to do and what is more important rather than looking at trivial things in the way and getting tensed.
Being a perfectionist is fine as long as you don’t obsess over it. Everybody wants to perform to their best ability. Nobody wants to lag behind. In that case, you need to look at factors on how you can improve, rather than how perfect you can be.
At iQuantM, we allow our team to fail. We don’t ask them to pursue perfection, but suggest them to pursue excellence. Many argue that in case of unimportant decisions, you should either outsource it to others or decide fast. When it’s occupied by overthinking, it becomes hard to decide what you need to do.
In his book “Business @the Speed of Thought: Succeeding in the Digital Economy“, Bill Gates has stated “Once you embrace unpleasant news not as a negative but as evidence of a need for change, you aren’t defeated by it,”
There is a finding on perfectionism suggesting that college students face more pressure nowadays to be perfect. Youngsters are competing vigorously to pursue illusional perfection.
We do not encourage this. Rather, we would advise our team to be themselves, embrace failures, learn from them and put their best efforts. This is what we believe will lead to greater heights in the future.
