Letting Agents : Why your perfectionism will ruin you and your lettings agency

Over the last two years, I have met hundreds of letting agents, mostly business owners, be they independent letting agents or franchised letting agents ... and there is something I have noticed about 70% to 80% of them ... their attempt at running the perfect lettings agency.
When I say “perfect letting agency” to these agents, reaching the peak of perfection is the decisive and pinnacle of accomplishment to them being a letting agent. Such letting agents incessantly strive to be perfect at whatever they do. Sometimes, they will frequently fail at this goal, which fuels their aspiration to be ‘even more perfect’ next time.
But striving for perfect must be a good thing? Even if we don’t get perfect, most of the time? 
Because by aiming for the best and being perfect, even if we don’t reach perfect, we may still end up being in an awesomely good place .... one or two steps down from greatness…and that has to be a good thing, right?
