Quote: Excellence vs Perfectionism

“Striving to be your best can be very positive as long as your goals are realistic, they move you forward, and they provide you with satisfaction from the efforts at self improvement. Perfectionism becomes a problem when your goals and expectations make you feel worse instead of better or leave you always unsatisfied and self critical because perfection is always out of reach.” – Howard E. LeWine, M.D
