5 Tips For Perfectionists

  1. Use the 20/80 rule
    20% Perfection will lead you to 80% of your costs. Customers might not be willing to pay for another 80% perfection.
  2. Manage time
    Don't lose yourself in details, respect your customer's urgency.
  3. Focus on your goal/target
    Don't take too many side steps.
  4. Don't be obsessive
    Trivialities can become far too important. This distracts the attention from the bigger picture. It is costly and frustrating progress.
  5. Think comparative
    Don't do everything yourself. Sometimes, others might be slightly cheaper or faster.
