Join Chris Croft for an in-depth discussion in this video Personality barriers to effective time usage, part of Management: Top Tips.
- One of the blockages that you may have…and which many people have,…is you may have one or more of the personality drivers…which reduce your effective use of time.…There are three personality drivers…I want to briefly mention here.…And the first one is the be perfect driver.…These drivers are like a voice in your head…constantly saying, ah but is it perfect?…Should I just check that detail?…Is there a typo?…And the be perfect driver will make you spend too long…on things that aren't important.…
Now a little bit of be perfect is good of course,…'cause it means that you'll care about detail,…but you need to make sure that it…doesn't become a mental monster.…If you feed it it'll become bigger and bigger…until it becomes a mental monster.…So feeding your be perfect driver is…fiddling with things, checking things,…trying to make sure everything's right.…And the more you do that you won't satisfy it,…it'll just become more of an obsession in your head,…so there are times when you have to just let it go…and think, well that's good enough.…
