Perfectionism served many of us well while we grew up. It allowed us to go to the best schools and get the best jobs. Yet, once we are in the “real” world, perfectionism often leads us to a life of working too hard, enjoying too little, and feeling like nothing is ever good enough. Add to that that “perfect” is now measured in more subjective ways (we don’t take tests at work), and you can find yourself working more than ever before.
