The Completionist, Hasty Mover, and Goldilocks

The Completionist prioritizes accomplishing every task they’re given — irrespective of how important the tasks are. 

The Hasty Mover prioritizes speed at all costs — downstream consequences be damned. 

The Goldilocks prioritizes sufficiency — taking on the tasks that matter and dropping the ones that don’t; aiming to move quickly but not so quickly that they compromise on the outcome they need. 

Your first reflex might be to look inwards and ask yourself which persona you identify with. 

That’s important to understand.

Another vital question to ask: which persona are you — as a leader, as a teammate — encouraging your team to adopt?
