When it comes to working and reaching our goals, we all want to do the best job possible. If something is important to us, we’ll pay attention to the little details and try to get everything right. And it’s great to be detail-oriented and care about the work we do.
However, when our care for the details turns into an obsession with perfectionism, that may be the time to take a step back. Perfectionism tends to hold us back in different ways — we’ll overthink and get inside our own heads, be too critical of our progress, and stop ourselves from completing the work that needs to be done.
Creativity and innovation come in all shapes and forms, and if we always wait for our work to be perfect, we would hardly ever be able to show it to the world. Don’t worry about little details that are unnecessary. Get the work done, let it out into the public, and prepare to keep moving forward.
