While you might think that being a perfectionist will be beneficial to your new endeavor by making you more motivated and pushing you to strive for success, that's not always the case. In fact, as reported by Harvard Business Review, perfectionists have higher levels of stress, burnout, anxiety, and depression. Stop aiming for perfection.
