Claire Capacities Response

I am a procrastinating perfectionist. The fear of frustration over not meeting my standards leads to procrastination because I am always finding ways to avoid the fear. Ironically, procrastination just exacerbates the stress since I would have less time to “perfect” my work.

However, over the years I figured a moderate amount of procrastination helps me get over my perfectionist mentality. The time pressure eases my obsession with making everything as meticulously as possible. It leads to more creative and efficient way of working. Now instead of getting worked up over small details, I tend to focus on the bigger picture.
