1. Being a Perfectionist

Perfectionists strive to deliver high-quality work, but their high standards cause stress, burnout and anxiety in the long run.

Time management tips:

  • Get comfortable with imperfection. Ask yourself: "Am I being productive? Can I get more results with a handful of imperfect tasks?"
  • Reflect on your progress on a weekly, bi-weekly and monthly basis.
  • Ask for perspective and support. Show your work to your supervisor to learn if you are doing good and the current quality of work is sufficient.
