Perfectionist faces the following problems and the article provides some solutions.
1. You’re reluctant to designate decisions as “unimportant.”
Abstract for Solution: A perfectionist can learn to love giving up control over some choices if they pay attention to how good it feels to be relieved of the decision-making burden.

2. You feel morally obligated to overdeliver.
Abstract for Solution: Understand what it’s costing you to always aim for outperformance. If you assess that the costs are significant, try having a rule of thumb for when you’ll overdeliver.

3. You get excessively annoyed when you aren’t 100% consistent with good habits.
Abstract for Solution: Have a mechanism in place for checking that you’re not sticking to a habit just because you’re worshiping at the altar of self-discipline.
