This book serves as a reminder that while perfectionism may seem like a worthy ideal to strive towards, it makes us impose limits on ourselves and puts us in a bind. Perfectionism is a poison that is not only more harmful than we realize, but also extremely difficult to eradicate from our lives.

Were perfectionism limited to personal preference, we wouldn’t attach much importance to it. However, it is often the root of a multitude of issues; procrastination, constantly leaving work only 95% finished, severe anxiety, depression, and in extreme cases, driving people to drastic measures.
