Perfectionism

Article Date: Sep 13, 2013

Many of us know high achievers or, perhaps, you are a high achiever yourself. High achievers seek excellence at school, home and work. Setting realistic, achievable goals offers the high achiever a sense of accomplishment and the feeling of a job well done. Often the high achiever will push just a bit further to produce a result, gain important experience, or move beyond a previous limitation. But a high achiever is not necessarily a perfectionist. A high achiever will leave some wiggle room for themselves with regard to the outcome. Even if a goal is not achieved 100%, they feel a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction for the job they did.

Listen to Karen Bermel talk about "Perfectionism" on Spirit Catholic Radio.
