Perfectionism, Suzanne, is the first ingredient in the recipe for a nervous breakdown.
Judging from your picture, I’d say that you’re probably too young to remember the Total Quality Movement that became popular 20-30 years ago.
Everything was quality.
The goal was perfection.
I think that Six Sigma came out of that. (Sigma is the greek letter for one standard deviation, and six is an alliterative expression of near perfection.)
Quality is important, but no one cares if it’s perfect.
All people really want is to solve their problem.
And those of us who tend towards perfectionism have to remember that.
