People often think of perfectionists as people who deliver perfect results. But the reality is that the compulsion to perform every task perfectly often results in avoidance, anxiety, and procrastination leading to late, incomplete, or altogether absent outcomes. If you have trouble getting started on tasks, that doesn’t mean you’re lazy, it could mean you’re struggling with clinical perfectionism. But don’t panic, huddle.care is here to help!
