I’m a recovering perfectionist…or as my friends like to say “OCD”. There is much to be said about people who perfect every detail, like they never get anything done. If we’re so consumed with every nook and cranny, we can lose sight of the big picture, or worse yet not complete anything because we are so scared of failure or frightened of success.
Am I suggesting we create marketing and pr campaigns with errors? Or that care and thought isn’t behind all of our efforts? No, it simply means that if we “let go” and replace perfectionism with compromise and collaboration, we end up with a better product. Not to mention, it gets done!
