“Whenever something seems to be too hard; look and see if your perfectionism is getting in the way. When your frustration level reaches that exploding point; STOP and check to see if it is your perfectionism that is making you crazy.” – FLYLady The Bonds of Perfectionism
“Often pursuing the perfect makes us miss the good.” – FLYBaby
I fight my perfectionism in language learning. Like I want to write perfect notes and flashcards for each class. Yet I get so caught up, I miss the point which is to learn all the material, not focus on one small piece until it is perfect.
Keep it simple, and get the job done.
