Done with perfectionism

"It seems to me most artists have a mild version of the condition (perfectionism)." Robert Genn's Twice Weekly Letters today is about The Plight of Perfectionists. Yes, guilty as charged!
"An overly demanding, displeased parent, sibling or spouse, even from the distant past, is a common source. Guilt, fear and common garden-variety stubbornness play their part." Wouldn't you know it; my sisters – more so than brothers – exhibit similar symptoms. Thanks to Mom.
"While counselling may be necessary, vigorous introspection is often a good course." I vigorously chant a mantra "Done is better than perfect." (Scott Allen).
