Creative Pep Talk #3: Perfectionism

Pep Talk Logo

Welcome back for Creative Pep Talk #3! This week, we’re delving into the deep, dark world of perfectionism. This is an overview of the evils of perfectionism, because to truly explore it would take more than 8 minutes, but I hope it’ll get you thinking about how you fall into this trap, and what you might want to do differently to keep yourself out of perfectionism’s clutches so you can enjoy your creative adventures instead of letting them torment you—because where’s the fun in that?

Perfectionism is the absolute antithesis of creative joy.
