The pursuit of perfection takes a superhuman effort to achieve and a superhuman effort to maintain. You have enough work on your plate already; you don’t need another full time job. So we encourage you to let the need to achieve perfection go.
The 80/20 rule states that in any pursuit, if you take care of a few important things (20%), you will solve 80% of your problem. The most efficient way forward is to focus on the 20% that is vital to success and spend less time on the rest.
Too often, we carry an unnecessarily heavy burden—holding on to and yes, controlling, everything. We know that letting go enough to delegate effectively can be a tough challenge—but it is one worth overcoming. Just start to ditch perfection and delegation will come easier to you. Learn this valuable lesson and you will have a lighter load.
