Confession: I am not, generally, fond of cutesy names… On first look “satisficing” just seems like “spell-check nightmare” to me.
But the concept is fantastic. “Satisficing simply means to not obsess about trying to maximize every single task outcome and ROI.”
The lead-in reads:
“One of the fastest paths to burnout is when brilliant people get so stuck on making everything they do AMAZING that all they have to show for their efforts is a string of sleepless nights, broken commitments, and work left undone. But life doesn’t have to be this way.”
All of my Virgo-oriented, perfectionist friends and co-workers (you know who you are) should go read this over at 99u.
