Overcoming Perfectionism

Overcoming Perfectionism

It's time to fess up.  Are you a perfectionist? Do you set yourself high standards and then get cranky when you don't live up to them? Do you expect a lot from others and then get disappointed when they don't cut it? Are you procrastinating over something because it's easier to do that than to face the possibility that you won't do it perfectly?

Perfectionism is a curse that many of us live with but there is hope.  You can overcome it - or at least temper it a bit so that life is not quite so overwhelming.

Getting your values, the things that are most important to you, clear in your mind (or preferably out of your mind and on to paper or screen), is a really simple way to quickly identify your priorities.  Once you know your priorities you’re much more likely to spend your time doing the stuff that’s important and meaningful and goal pursuant than if you’re just reacting to what pops up in front of you.

We're all busy, right?  But why is it that some people remain focused, calm and immeasurably productive in their busy-ness while others of us spin chaotic circles, getting nothing done?

Google 'how to prioritise' and you'll get 6.25 millions hits, each containing between one and 15 tips or strategies for getting your mind and tasks in shape to increase your efficiency and reduce your 'to do' list.  Assuming a 50 per cent overlap in suggestions, that's maybe 18 million thoughts on how to prioritise.

Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom - Aristotle

  • Our strengths
  • Our interests
  • Our values
