The Quest for Perfection: Are you a Perfectionist?
- 5 Months ago
Most of us understand perfectionism in its literal sense, paying attention to small details and tediously fixing every minute flaw. But on reading the fine print, one would realize that perfectionism as we know it is nothing but a misunderstanding of the value of failure. Our shortcomings start to cloud over our strengths as we begin obsessing over getting things right every time. This makes us lose sight of the big picture and the valuable lessons life has to offer.
There is nothing wrong with striving for excellence in your career, life and relationships. However, if you feel that giving less than 100 percent is not good enough, you may be setting yourself up for a lifetime of disappointment.
