024: Perfectionism

On this week’s episode, Maria and Anna discuss perfectionism. They offer answers as to why some of us are perfectionists, what areas of life we apply perfectionism to, and how it both hinders and helps us. They also discuss how perfectionism relates to control, how it affects collaboration with others, and ultimately how we can change our views on perfectionism in order to benefit us. And, they round out the discussion with some classic wisdom from Voltaire.

This week's quote:
"Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good." - Voltaire (upon further investigation, it looks like what he actually said translates more accurately to "The best is the enemy of the good." )
