Thoughts on Perfectionism
Do you know the difference between working to be perfect
And working to be powerful?
Do you know when perfectionism is helping you accomplish goals
And when it is blocking and hindering you?
Perfectionism undermines risk-taking and learning.
Perfectionism carries the risk of anxiety and stress.
Perfectionism causes resistance to feedback.
Perfectionism threatens recognition and engagement.
Perfectionism disables and destabilizes in the worst possible way.
Perfectionism can be deadly.
One key to becoming powerful is to know
That perfectionism is only beneficial in some situations.
Another one is to accept
What can you be more accepting of about yourself?
What can you be more accepting of with others?
