Over the weekend I met a wickedly smart 16 year old. She confessed to being a perfectionist; a common term used by people trying to explain why they procrastinate or hide their truest selves. As a recovering perfectionist, I recognize this pattern like my favorite pair of shoes. There are a few types of people:
1. People who are waiting to reveal their true selves.
2. People who are catching up to who they really are.
3. And people who know their truest self.
The first step to wisdom is calling things as they really are. Start calling perfectionism what it really is; procrastination, fear, doubt, and “that thing” limiting our full potential.
