Do you consider yourself a perfectionist?


If so, I thought you might find it helpful to learn that perfectionism, for the most part, isn’t actually the benefit that we think it is, and can even cause unnecessary stress, anxiety, and depression.


And I want you to live a happy, vibrant, healthy life!


You see somewhere along our journey in life, we may have learned to place a high value on having zero mistakes or having everything done perfectly.


And boy oh boy, does this limiting belief of “everything must be perfect or it’s not acceptable” really do a number on us.


What I’m saying is that sometimes we can be our worst task-masters.


There are actually studies that have found that there is no positive link between perfectionism and performance.


Among other negative consequences, the “fear of not being perfect” can cause us to spend a lot more time doing tasks than those who don’t struggle with perfectionism.


And due to issues such as burnout and other mental health-related problems, studies show that perfectionism has an overarching detrimental effect on both employees and organizations.


For some truly eye-opening research on this subject, check out this Harvard Business Review post.


Here’s an idea that will lower stress and pressure my love.


Try practicing the “80% is good enough” rule.


Yup, that’s right! Good enough is good enough, even if there is the occasional typo or all the i’s aren’t dotted and t’s crossed.


It takes a committed effort to get used to allowing yourself and your work to be acceptable to you, even if it’s not 100%.


Babes, I hope you know that I only have your best interests at heart.


I want you to live a happy, stress-free life.


So go ahead, take a load off. Why not try on a little good-enough-ism for size and see how it feels?


Cheers to you, your health, and happiness my love!
