I didn’t used to identify with perfectionism. I always thought a perfectionist was someone who got 98% on a test and then mourned the other 2.
A perfectionist was someone who was incredibly meticulous, someone with super-human organizational skills.
“Not me. ” I’d think. “Guess I’m not a perfectionist.”
Then I dug deeper into personal work… I went spelunking in some dark crypts of my psyche and lo and behold! I uncovered a broken record-player crankin’ out “you’re not good enough…yet” over and over and over.
In fact, the more issues I worked on, the more this same tune came up! Suddenly I was seeing all the ways this perfectionist critic had been running my career and killing my earning capacity: ‘I’ll be a better and more successful doctor if I just get another certification, read another textbook, practice more like “that” colleague or take another course (followed by another and another…)’.
I realized perfectionism came in WAY more varieties than I’d thought and I was drinking my very own flavor of perfectionist koolaid.
Do you drinketh the koolaid too?
