The problem with perfectionism.
It's like this: When you are aiming for perfection, and nothing short of it will do, the temptation is to put everything off until there is time to do it all, and do it all perfectly. Guess what? That time will never come!
But a little bit of PM done every day will keep your maintenance enemies at bay. Fifteen minutes now is a lot better than a fictional, perfect four hours someday or when you have the time to devote to perfect PM, which might never--probably won't ever--get here.
Don't wait for that perfect time or those perfect conditions to take care of your PM business. Do it now, today, with the 15 minutes you can squeeze out now. Wipe off that moisture, check those fluid levels, tighten those bolts, meet that immediate need that is right in front of you.
Do it again tomorrow, and the next, and the next, and you'll find that you have taken care of PMCS.
IT'S TAKEN ME FOUR HOURS, BUT THE PM ON THIS TRUCK IS PERFECT!!
HEY, WHAT ABOUT MY PM MR. PERFECT?
