Well it isn't but hopefully you're now singing and thinking about drinking sangria in the park.
The point is that it doesn't have to be a perfect day and it likely very often isn't and that's the same with anything where you are trying to be perfect. You don't need to be. The people or situation you are trying to be perfect for probably don't mind too, unless you're a brain surgeon or rocket scientist.
I get frustrated when I don't do things perfectly. I have a friend who is the same. I bet you do too.
It reminded me of some stickers about Mental Health I found recently on Twitter and have been plastering the office with, here they are.
I like them. I look at the done is better than perfect one on my desk a lot.
Done is better than perfect most of the time. And if you try and think like that you'll give yourself an easier time.
I also think perfectionism is harder to keep in check when you work remotely (you can probably tell I do from the amount of times I mention it), and that's when you need to check your work with others more and your managers and peers need to check in with you that you're not doing too much. And ask for help if you need it. It really is ok.
And invest some time in yourself, because like Lou said, you're going to reap what you sow.
Seya, take care
