Developers like to refine ideas and hone their thinking. This tendency to strive for perfection can move an idea from half-baked to brilliant. But it can also get in the way of moving ideas into action. Learn to live with imperfection. Recognize that others may grow impatient with the time you invest in tweaking your ideas and plans. Be conscious of the diminishing returns of continued elaboration and analysis. Carefully watch your time management skills so that projects do not linger. Your objective approach may strike others
as impersonal and overly analytical. Be sensitive to those who take a more subjective approach. Remember that some decisions defy logic, and intuition can have a role in choosing the best course of action. You can get so wrapped up in developing one approach that you lose sight of other worthy alternatives. Learn to create and entertain diverse options before committing to one pathway forward.
