Overview
A guide for getting your perfectionism to work for you

Is perfectionism a good thing or does it get in our way? InThe Perfectionist's Handbook, clinical psychologist JeffSzymanski helps readers navigate their way out of the"perfectionism paradox": if your intentions are good (wanting toexcel) and the outcomes you want are reasonable (to feel competentand satisfied), why would perfectionism backfire and result inunhappiness and stress? Learn when perfectionism will pay off, andwhen and why it sabotages you. Specific strategies are outlinedthroughout the book to help readers transform their perfectionismfrom a liability to an asset.

There is no reason to eliminate perfectionismaltogether--instead, build on what's working and change what'snot. The Perfectionist's Handbook helps readers to:

  • Distinguish between intention and strategy as a way ofimproving outcomes
  • Identify diminishing returns and how to redistribute time andresources
  • Make the most of mistakes rather than being preoccupied withtrying to avoid them
  • Learn to focus on your "Top 10" list as a way of getting themost out of your life
  • Access others more effectively as a way of improvingperformance
  • Obtain more balance in their lives
