I will try my best to describe. Some times, I have found that people tend to do the minimum procedures to finish what they do, and find improving unnecessary. I understand different people have different definition of what's perfect, and have justification for not making it better. Maybe it is due to rules in where they live, or policies in where they work, or just because we are not paid enough to polish the result. Is there a word or phrase to describe this phenomenon? Thanks in advance.
perfunctory - (adjective) (of an action or gesture) carried out with a minimum of effort or reflection.
