I used to do this in business. Fiddling. Meddling. Polishing. Trying to get some really fine detail ‘just right’.

“Hang on… the blue is a teeny bit darker here – than there…”

…when no one notices really. No one cares. And I was doing things like this when I really should have been getting on with bigger (harder!) strategic stuff. The chunkier work. Work that gets results and matters most.

I’m a big fan of going the extra mile and trying so very hard to deliver excellence in the minutiae. But not if it paralyses progress. Which it sometimes did for me.
