Perfectionism is wanting everything that you do to be perfect and it can be difficult to cope with when we make mistakes. Especially when trying to complete assignments perfectionism can really get in the way. 

This article here has some great info for overcoming mistakes if you're interested in reading more before the chat. 

 

So join us here on Monday 9th of April  at 7:30pm AEST (no more daylight savings) for a chat on overcoming perfectionism.

Re: [CHAT] Overcoming Perfectionism

Heyhey everybody!!

 

1. Do you consider yourself to be a perfectionist? 

In some situations I am definitely a perfectionist - I feel like I need to be in control of and account for everything when I'm working on something, or I need it to be absolutely perfect the first time around. That being said, I've been in plenty of situations where my perfectionism has backfired on me, so I'm sort of learning the hard way haha

Re: [CHAT] Overcoming Perfectionism

Hey @May_ and @Bee and everyone else! It's been a while since I've been on a GR, but here is my answer to the first question:

 

1. Do you consider yourself to be a perfectionist?
I guess so! However, I am not as much of a perfectionist now as I was when I was younger
