Perfectionists are some of the most pigheaded, cantankerous, and inflexible people you’ll ever meet. They can’t help it. They were born that way! They’re also some of the most proud individuals on the planet – proud of their work ethics and their accomplishments.
We all know that no one is perfect, right? Save yourself the grief and don’t try sharing that little gem of wisdom with a perfectionist. These poor folks can spend a lifetime striving for the impossible!
How hard do you think it is for a perfectionist to manage and build a small business single-handedly? It’s got to be at least a hundred times harder than it is for anyone else who recognizes their limitations and time constraints and reaches out for help.
It’s harder for a perfectionist to outsource business building tasks than it is to run a marathon barefoot!
Think I’m exaggerating? Find a small business owner who’s a true perfectionist and ask them for outsourcing referrals or recommendations. My guess? That section of their rolodex will be blank.
Being a perfectionist is NOT a blessing … it’s a curse. How can I be so sure? I’ll let you figure that out. 😉
