The disease of perfectionism
Updated: Oct 30, 2022
The pitfalls of perfectionism are explored in a recent blog post by Jim Kokocki, a consultant, author and public speaker.
“If you have perfectionist tendencies, take solace in knowing that someone won’t enjoy your work,” Jim writes in the post. “But many will.”
He walks the reader through an exploration of how the pursuit of perfection can be paralyzing, referring to interviews with the British actor who plays Mr. Bean and a Boiling Point podcast interview with Seth Godin.
He went on to share his reaction to some feedback he received from one of his hundreds of public speaking engagements.
“If you think someone might not like your work, you’re correct. That shouldn’t stop you from releasing your work in some form.”
