Yeah, I'll admit it. I'm a perfectionist. Obsessive-Compulsive. Anyone else? If so, how do you deal with it?
"Channel the energy in a positive direction"? What do you mean?Kiki said:Perfectionist and OCD? Wow! You hit the jackpot. The best way to deal with it is to channel the energy in a positive direction, otherwise you drive yourself and everybody else crazy.
Is your perfectionism and OCD causing a problem in your life or do you think you have it under control? If not, find something that you are interested in and become the best at it; whatever that might be. Use the energy from the perfectionism to make every situation that you are in better for your having been there or improve your circumstances or environment where ever you might be. Things like that.jhande08 said:
Same here, and I deal with it by trying to spend less than an hour on whatever it is I'm obsessing over. Some things naturally take longer than that (such as putting up house siding or a roof), but I always try to focus on the bigger picture when I realize that I'm spending too much time on one thing.jhande08 said:Yeah, I'll admit it.
