Struggling with a perfectionist mentality

Struggling with a perfectionist mentality

Perfectionism is a tool you’re using to keep you from reaching your full potential.

There is no perfect. People who struggle with perfectionism should learn to be aggressively imperfect. It's okay to feel vulnerable. We're all human, after all.

Types of perfectionists

To fix a problem, you first have to admit you have a problem. this means discovering what type of perfectionist you are.

  • The Striver: You have no problem starting a task, but you set unreachable standards, so you're constantly battling against failure.
  • The Idealist: You spend all your time envisioning the perfect future. You know you'll never reach the vision in your mind, so you don't make a move to begin.

Finding your “yes”

It's much easier to say no to things when you can identify your yes. A good yes should align with your core values and leave you feeling fulfilled.

Ask yourself these five questions to find out how you feel about an opportunity. If you answer "no" to any of these questions, you should probably let it go.

  1. Do you want to take this on?
  2. Why?
  3. How much time will it take?
  4. Do you have the time?
  5. Does it fulfil you?

The three priority levels

You may have to say yes to something that doesn't necessarily fulfil you. When in doubt about what to prioritize in your life, use the three-level prioritizing system.

  1. Escalate: Important and urgent. These tasks are pushing us toward long-term goals and have a pressing deadline.
  2. Cultivate: Important but not urgent. These activities will grow us and move us closer to our end goals but have no deadline. It's easy to let go of these tasks, but they deserve the most emphasis.
  3. Accommodate: Unimportant but urgent. These tasks have a pressing deadline but don't help us reach our long-term goals, such as a messy kitchen. Spend as little time as possible in this section.

When we use a priority list, we work by priority and stop wasting energy deciding what to do next.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
