As I was agonising over what to write in this - my first ever blog – the answer became clear: perfectionism.
Over the years, the urge to make things perfect has led to some painful results:
Decisions can take weeks. (And occasionally years!)
Finishing projects can take forever. And I could have used that time for something new.
One of my clients, an IT manager, was missing deadlines because he hated signing off on tasks. His perfectionistic urge drove him to keep re-working them.
