In Episode Lucky #13, I talk about the pros and cons of being a perfectionist. I share how to use it to your advantage and how to overcome the neurotic perfectionism. Either way, one must first understand why you are a perfectionist. Why are you a perfectionist to begin with? To what end does your perfectionism serve? I review common motivations for perfectionism.
This episode is just for you, your underlying motivations for perfectionism are tied to an aspiration to be a better person, to be the best you can be, and to do right by others.
