Dealing with Perfectionism

DONE is better than perfect.  Alan Weiss PhD

Yesterday I met Andrea, a college student who confessed that writing papers almost paralyzes her.  As we continued to talk, she shared that it was a perfectionism streak that stopped her from moving forward with a writing project.  She said that she had recently begun a new tactic: take action in spite of the fear.  I encouraged her by saying that she was being very wise in taking steps to overcome this limiting belief now, at her young age.  There are many adults who are paralyzed in life because they are afraid of taking the wrong step.

How do you operate on a daily basis: do you get a project done—or are you paralyzed by a perfectionist streak? Leave your comments below.
