Perfectionism

” If you look for perfection, you’ll never be content “

Leo Tolstoy

Every one of us is a perfectionist about something.  Learn to sense when your desire to make something perfect is preventing you from getting it done.  Realize that the idea of perfection is not only unachievable, it can destroy your otherwise productive mindset.  It will keep you running in place, feeling insane for your entire life.

If you feel like you’re running in place right now, take a break and reflect.  Think about the difference between diligent effort and perfectionism.  Know when enough is enough.

Say it out loud if you must:  “Get lost perfectionism!  Without you I am brilliant!”
