I have no idea how many of us there are, but a significant percentage of the population is made up of perfectionists. Some of us are easy to spot because just about everything around us is always just so. Others not so much. We’re the frustrated perfectionists, with too little time, energy, ambition or something to make things “just so” all the time; and frustrated because, regardless of reality, that’s what we want. I live in the second of those scenarios, pretty much full-time. Just come look at my desk, sometime. On second thought, don’t. Some things are better left as mysteries.
So, I’m fascinated by Adam Creighton’s post ” Foiled, every step of the way …” both because of what it reveals about his own perfectionism and how he is gaining some needed health in this area. Good for you, Adam. And much continued to success to you.
