Carolyn Hobbs, author of “Joy No Matter What” has a few suggestions on letting go of perfectionism.
1. See the good – don’t notice what’s wrong, see what is right
2. Don’t do so much. Don’t take on more than you can handle, just so you can seem capable. You are only setting yourself up to beat yourself up. Take something out of the schedule.
3. Set priorities. What really needs to be done well? What is worth the extra effort and what is just taking away your energy?
