Perfectionism Will Hurt You


Perfectionism is kind of like too much of a good thing. It's good to be interested in excellence, but when you feel that your work (or relationship) has to be perfect you are saddling yourself with a burden you don't need, a burden that can effect every area of your life. You won't be able to please yourself at work or at home because nothing and no one are ever perfect.

Perfectionism can lead to isolation for various reasons. You won't want to let people get too close to you lest they perceive your short-comings. This leaves you without alliances, and out of the loop.

What Were You Expecting?


Think back for a moment on the major disappointments in your life. The reason they're disappointments is because they didn't live up to your expectations. You had something in mind that didn't happen, or you wanted something you didn't get. You also had made up your mind - if you think about it - that it was going to be horrible if you didn't get it.

You wanted the job and you didn't get it, so you were disappointed. If you hadn't wanted the job, you would've been overjoyed not to get it!
