Do you suffer from analysis paralysis?

If your answer is yes, then you may be plagued with the dreaded disease-perfectionism. Perfectionism is just another mask for fear of not being good enough.  Insecure people fear only the perfect will prevail. Although you know there is no such thing as a perfect person, it does not stop you from pursuing perfection. Paradoxically, your own pursuit of perfection is realized by lessons learned from your mistakes. If you suffer from perfectionism, you do not have a problem quitting, as you usually do not start anything because it is never the perfect time to start. Perfectionists do not accomplish as much as they could in life because they suffer from analysis paralysis; paralyzed by fear of failure. A compulsive need to do everything perfect results in very little being attempted. The more perfectionists analyze the situation the more they become paralyzed with fear, hence the term analysis paralysis. Do not be held hostage by perfectionism.
