The Block of Perfectionism

Photo by Jonathan Hoxmark
  • You always feel that whatever creative project you do, it’s never good enough
  • You fear judgement of othersYou fear that others may think you are foolish, so you don’t start or finish your project,
  • You compare yourself to others, and feel you don’t measure up (This trait is exasperated by social media)
  • If you don’t get it exactly right, you view it as a failure
  • You set high expectations (perfectly organized, pristine house, perfect landscaping) and pressure yourself to reach these standards
  • There is little joy in your creative pursuits.
