Galloping perfection

Monday 1 March 2010, 1.00am HKT

“My grandmother used a wonderful old Irish expression: If a man on a galloping horse wouldn’t notice, don’t bother. Paying attention to detail IS important, but focus on the details that matter. (E.g., try for no typos, but don’t make yourself insane changing every “which” to “that” and vice versa.) There’s nothing worse than working with an ultra perfectionist who just won’t let go. I do have some sympathy for perfectionists, but when their need to control gets in the way of my need to get something done, I’m not going to be happy.”
