Are You A Perfectionist At Work?
I'd like to say I wrote this quote on perfectionism, but that wouldn't be the truth. These words ring true for me so I was compelled to share them. I knew I wanted to write a post on perfectionism after having a heartfelt conversation with my sister but it took me so long to put the words on paper I found myself doing the very thing I wanted to write about!
All of us get caught up with the need to be perfect, especially in our work. I believe we end up doing ourselves damage and often miss the moment. I think it's commendable to push ourselves and set high goals but I think perfectionism is one of those elusive things in life. Maybe I'm wrong. But when I try to be "perfect", I wind up driving myself and everyone around me crazy.
When it comes to our work, it's important to challenge ourselves and do our very best. That's all anyone (including your boss) can ask.
"Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor".
"Good Night, And Good Luck"
