About Today: Are You a Perfectionist? 11/16/10

From Jen Hubley, your About Today Editor
Most of us are our own worst enemy, and I don't just mean because we're good at talking ourselves out of that morning workout. One of the worst things we do to ourselves? Focus on getting things perfect to the point where we get nothing done at all.

Quiz: Are You a Perfectionist? 
Come to think of it, this relates to the morning workout. I'm really good at waking up fifteen minutes later than I'd planned and then deciding there's no point in going at all.
Overcoming Perfectionism 
Getting comfortable with things being less than perfect is even harder than avoiding the snooze button. But there are plenty of things you can do right now to practice being un-perfect.
How to Talk to Yourself - Nicely 
One reason I'm glad everyone uses headsets now for their cell phones: It makes it hard for people to tell that I talk to myself all day long. The hard part is making sure that I'm saying nice things to myself.
Meditation for Perfectionists 
The very idea of meditation is tough for perfectionists, because doing things "right" is beside the point. This is also probably why meditation is good for us.
