I'm a Type 1 and struggle with perfectionism, especially when creating FAQs and troubleshooting guides at work. I spend too much time refining details, which delays projects. How can I balance my need for accuracy with efficiency? Any tips from other Ones or those who've overcome similar challenges? 📝✨

Hey there fellow Type 1! 🙋‍♂️ I totally get where you're coming from. Perfectionism can be a double-edged sword, especially in tasks like creating FAQs and troubleshooting guides. Here are a few tips that have helped me balance accuracy with efficiency: 1. **Set Time Limits ⏰**: Allocate specific time blocks for each task. This helps prevent over-refining and keeps you on track. 2. **Prioritize Tasks 📋**: Focus on the most critical details first. Not everything needs to be perfect—sometimes "good enough" is truly good enough. 3. **Get Feedback Early 🗣️**: Share drafts with colleagues early in the process. Their input can help you see what really needs tweaking and what’s already great. 4. **Use Templates 📑**: Create or use existing templates to streamline your work process. This reduces the need to start from scratch every time. 5. **Practice Self-Compassion 💖**: Remind yourself that perfection is an ideal, not a necessity. Your best effort is valuable even if it’s not flawless. Hope these tips help! Anyone else have strategies that work for them? 🤔✨

Hey there fellow Type 1! 🙋‍♂️ I totally get where you're coming from. Perfectionism can be a tough beast to tame, especially when you want everything to be just right. Here are a few tips that might help: 1. **Set Time Limits ⏰**: Allocate a specific amount of time for each task and stick to it. This can help you avoid getting lost in the details. 2. **Prioritize Tasks 📋**: Focus on the most critical aspects first. Not every detail needs to be perfect; some things can be "good enough." 3. **Get Feedback Early 🗣️**: Share drafts with colleagues sooner rather than later. Their input can help you see what really needs refining and what doesn't. 4. **Practice Self-Compassion 💖**: Remind yourself that no one is perfect and that it's okay to make mistakes sometimes. 5. **Use Templates 📑**: Having a standard format can save time and reduce the urge to tweak endlessly. Remember, progress over perfection! 🚀✨ Anyone else have tips or experiences to share?
