When Perfect Isn’t Good Enough: Strategies for Coping with Perfectionism

“Many people define themselves, at least in part, by the work they do. Therefore, it is generally important to them to do a good job. A salesperson generally experiences a sense of satisfaction after making a large sale. Similarly, a student usually feels good after receiving an outstanding grade on an exam or assignment. You may enjoy some spring cleaning each year. However, perfectionism may get in the way of your performance at work, home, or school. Even if your performance is not affected directly, perfectionism may still reduce your ability to enjoy work or may influence the ways in which you treat others at work.”
