Could Perfectionism be killing you?

As I was agonising over what to write in this - my first ever blog – the answer became clear: perfectionism.

Over the years, the urge to make things perfect has led to some painful results:

  • Decisions can take weeks. (And occasionally years!)
  • Finishing projects can take forever. And I could have used that time for something new.
  • Stress!

One of my clients, an IT manager, was missing deadlines because he hated signing off on tasks. His perfectionistic urge drove him to keep re-working them.
