Very few things in life are as mentally taxing as the quest for perfection. I frankly need a nap just thinking about it. If you are a person who strives to give your best almost 100% of the time (and I know you are), it can be very difficult to dial it back a notch. ‘Perfect’ becomes a metric that is virtually impossible to avoid. Like most ambitious over-achievers – I say that with love, of course, for you are my people – you might also believe that creating a flawless deliverable is requisite for excellence. Or dare I say it – requisite for success.
