As an established "perfectionist" from way back, and one with an artistic bent, it's easy for me to focus on doing things right in any given situation. Whether it's a project or an interaction with someone, I seem to have a knack for, and a need for, perfection. Does this sound like you as well? While this quality is awesome in assisting me to create amazing results in any given project, it's also an invisible saboteur which can derail the project entirely, lead to procrastination, or ironically force an outcome that is far from the perfection I originally had in mind. Does this sound familiar at all? The key to success is found in the simplest of ancient principles: balance. "Yin vs yang". "See vs saw" (ok, I made that one up). But you get the idea. The next time you find yourself focusing intently on the tiniest details, and you have that nagging feeling you're not seeing or addressing the "big picture," ask yourself if you're trying to do things right or do the right things. In the end, doing the right things will lead to success more often than an intense focus on minutiae. If you want to take things a step further, ask yourself, what are you really avoiding by the focus on doing things right? What benefit or payoff is there for you to stay small? These questions, reader, are for me. I hope they gave you some food for thought. Until next time, we'll take it Bit by Bit!
