Don't be a perfectionist if you have a lot of tasks


In task management methodology a perfectionist is a person who performs his/her tasks with special care by ensuring that each task is perfectly completed. In some cases this is great if an employee does his to-do list perfectly and with great care. But there can be a big number of tasks and jobs the employee needs to complete within a short period. Then he needs additional time to be spent to check each task before proceeding with doing the next one. But this employee may have no time for checking the task at once, so as a perfectionist he has to postpone or even procrastinate all the next tasks. Therefore, the suggestion is that if you have dozens of tasks to do, you don't need to make sure each task is done perfectly and after that go over the next one.

In your everyday life you can VIP Task Manager to manage your tasks and to-do lists. You can use VIP Task Manager to cope with dozens of tasks and find time for checking the tasks.
