Satisficing: How Overachievers Stay Sane and Avoid Burn-Out

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.
