You’re working on a report. You polished the visuals, showing the insights in elegant detail. You reworked some tables to be more concise, and it’s almost perfect! It’s also a week late. The truth is, in most cases you don’t need to be perfect to be effective. The modern corporate workplace has layers upon layers of junior directors, directors, vice presidents, account executives, and project managers who will pick apart and revise any project you deliver. Every one of these people will give you feedback, and many of them will do so in a critical manner. Unfortunately, often your job as a young professional is to start a project. From there, the rest of the team can comment, and you assimilate their feedback into the project and start the cycle all over again. They will criticize you. They may make you feel worthless. In the end, I promise, this process will lead to success. But first, you have to learn how to be comfortable with “good enough.” From my experience, here are a few steps to keep perfectionism in check:
