tmight sound crazy, but encouraging a lower standard of work from your team is actually more productive than requiring perfection.
Think about when you clean your room — picking up clothes and making your bed are fast actions with a big impact. Some people would stop there. But others, looking to do a “perfect” job, will spend hours scrubbing floorboards and whitewashing the walls.
The amount of work it takes to get from nothing to “good,” in this example, is considerably less than it takes to get from “good” to “perfect.” And when you look at what you get back from doing “good,” the return on investment for “perfect” isn’t worth it.
