One of my favorite interview question is “what is the worst thing about you?”

It is uncanny how many times I have heard the response, “I am a perfectionist. I fret if things are not done the right way.”

No you are not. Because here is what most people mean to say – “I fret if things are not done my way.”

There is nothing such as a perfectionist. Instead, such individuals are accuracy seekers. Fervent truth seekers. They will make sure things are beautiful and they function accurately. Not perfectly. Accurately. 

The iPhone wasn’t the perfect phone. It still isn’t. 

It’s an accurate phone. Accurate lines. Accurate design. Accurate experience. 

Don’t seek perfection. That is elusive

Seek accuracy. And ship fast.
