a tendency to set standards that are so high that they either cannot be met, or are only met with great difficulty. it seems there is no problem with that or people thinks perfectionism is a good thing. people are proud to say that they are perfectionists but actually there is no good thing in perfectionism. it is a bad habit and you should get rid of the bog of perfectionism. one of the natural consequences of perfectionism is procrastination which means you procrastinate just to do something at the “right” moment. you are constantly waiting for the “right” moment to work on your goals. you only want to start when you are “ready” so as to deliver your best quality of work. however, this state of “readiness” never seems to come sometimes. sometimes, it never comes as you perpetually wait just to get something done. so while you think you are a perfectionist you would be nothing but a damned lazy idiot.
