perfectionist - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
I am glad for my other responsibilities for others, because without them my perfectionist nature toward my passions would consume me entirely.
One can be a perfectionist in intellectual, artistic or sporting pursuits, and very laisez-faire in others. Indeed, it is an advantage in being so because it frees up cognitive brain power for the development of the talent.
Happiness comes when you do what you love and love whom you are. Perfectionism is part of the recipe for such success and happiness, yet it is similar to salt in a dish, you need it to bring out the flavours, yet too much spoils it completely. Balance is key.
Perfection is overrated. As any biologist will tell you, the next question is, "Perfect for what?" Perfection is subjective - always measured against both personal and culturally changing criteria. We are all born to be who we are, "perfect" for our own lives and purposes. We set out to be the best version of ourselves possible; we love, we forgive, we nurture. A bird can never be a perfect fish, and a fish cannot be a perfect beetle. I can never be a perfect you, and you can never be a perfect me - and you know what? To me, that is perfection.
From the perfectionists, with their powerful focus, comes the mastery of their god-given obsessions. They are the pioneers of their craft. They are challenging for themselves and others, yet they have the ability to bring such goodness into the world by virtue of their discoveries. All have their place in nature, and the perfectionist is a necessary part of creation as much as any other.
