Perfection and Speed

I read it somewhere long time back, but I reconfirm it-
" A common trap for design thinking is searching for perfect designs—the belief that there is a single right answer to a given problem, and a designer should be able to realize it given enough time. In many cases, the best possible design (if there is such a thing) isn't worth more than a good one, especially if it takes twice as much time to find it. "

However this quote does not discount the role of 'attention to details', only limits it in a pragmatic way. This combination is becoming rarer and rarer.
