I’ve been working on this project on and off. Now, a few months have passed. The last blog entry was written in November. It’s not that nothing has happened since then. It’s just that a lot of other things have (as usual) taken more of my time.
So, it hit me. While searching my desk, I found this: 13 Tips for More Effective Time Management. Entry 10 hit me hard:
AVOID BEING A PERFECTIONIST. In the Malaysian culture, only the gods are considered capable of producing anything perfect. Whenever something is made, a flaw is left on purpose so the gods will not be offended. Yes, some things need to be closer to perfect than others, but perfectionism, paying unnecessary attention to detail, can be a form of procrastination.
OK, so instead of “perfect” blog entries, I’ll simply churn out stuff as it goes.
