Hi John,

You have to remember that just because you could do a better job (given
more time/money to gain knowledge), doesn't mean that it is in the
company's best interest for you to do a better job. There is nothing
wrong with having high standards or being a perfectionist, as long as
you know how to turn it off when it exceeds what the company requires.

You should discuss it with your boss. I'd even go as far as doing a
report or Cost Benefit Analysis on your suggested improvements. Just
make sure you can live with it if they say, "sorry, it's not important
enough to our company".

Hope this helps,
