“Perfectionism is not a quest for the best. It is a pursuit of the worst in ourselves, the part that tells us that nothing we do will ever be good enough - that we should try again.” Julia Cameron

The latest buzz word in the corporate meeting circles ... "Perfect!" Statement: "I'll get that report to you right away." Response: "Perfect!" Statement: "I'll take this scenario, run it through the model, and give you the results." Response: "Perfect!" Statement: "We should test these 2 options against the control." Response: "Perfect!" Statement: "I'll just do my job." Response: "Perfect!"
