Progress not perfection ...
Great advise CJ! I'm putting that little phrase in my toolbox.
I think it's very easy as a perfectionist to lose perspective ... we're so busy with control. And so creating projects and actually writing out the outcome was always helpful for me. At one point I got the skill of project titles and next action titles that actually reflect the outcomes pretty well, but I would still bullet point list project outcomes that had any degree of ambiguity. And so then, when I start spending more time, or mulling over one little decision, I would pull myself out by referring to the outcome.
So my advice... - be a perfectionist about making progress towards the outcome, rather than perfectionist about the one action item you happen to be working on right then.
