Avoid perfectionism. Some people have trouble accepting anything less than perfection from themselves. If you find yourself pursuing perfectionism and feeling negatively about yourself when you are less than perfect, take three simple steps. Stop your current line of thinking, then focus on the effort that will be required to work towards a goal, then steadily apply the required effort.
Changing your focus from a final product (which may be evaluated in terms of “perfection) to the effort behind a task (which is harder to quantify as “perfect”) can help you appreciate your own good work.
