    You just described me. The other day, I said out loud, a finished job is never complete if you’re a perfectionist,. I’m working on a piece titled, Outward Appearances. The story of how I appear to others is far from how I feel about myself inward. Kinda sad, really.

    Thank you! your article describes me almost exactly. Is it too late to calm down and enjoy what time I have left? I’m an octogenarian.

    I don’t see those labeled as perfectionist as having, or being the problem. The alleged perfectionist’s problem is the sea of mediocrity, the swamp of sloth, they long to escape.
