Perfectionism is a major downfall for many of us.
We set high standards for ourselves and have this notion that the more time and effort we put into something, the better the end result we will produce.
You may be thinking that perfectionism isn’t something that’s an issue for you. Well, do any of these apply to you?
- You are quick to criticise yourself if you make mistakes or do not meet the expectations you have set for yourself.
- You spend hours refining a piece of work that you don’t end up using anyway.
- You tend to focus on what has gone wrong, even if it was something really minor, rather than focus on the things that have gone right.
- You’ve had products you’ve never released because you think it isn’t complete or good enough to be released.
