“Trifles make perfection, but perfection is no trifle.” – Michelangelo
Given the right (or wrong) conditions both Eugene Chen and I, the co-founders of Firenest, are perfectionists. This is something we weren’t aware of until we were well into working together, and it had both good and bad effects. This combined with equal doses of stubbornness led to long and intense discussions on the smallest points of design or user experience. We could waste an entire afternoon debating the position of a link. The most disappointing part of this was the realization that our obsession with details in itself wasn’t the problem, but that we focused it in the wrong places.
