5. THEY AVOID THE TRAP OF TRYING TO MAKE THINGS PERFECT.
This is an area that I have had to work on, being a Controller Personality Type - I happily claimed my perfectionism! It has taken years of growth and personal development to allow me to change my thinking - most of the time! Ha!
Perfectionism is a common form of erroneous thinking that leads to procrastination. Believing that you must do something perfectly is a recipe for stress, and you'll associate that stress with the task and condition yourself to avoid it. So you put the task off to the last possible minute until you finally have a way out of this trap -- now there isn't enough time to do the job perfectly, so your're off the hook because you can tell yourself that you could have been perfect if only you would of had more time!
The solution to perfectionism is to give yourself permission to be human. Have you ever used a piece of software that you consider to be perfect in every way? No way. Realize that an imperfect job completed today is always superior to the perfect job delayed indefinitely.
If you are a proud perfectionist, do yourself a favor and Lower your standards to EXCELLENCE!
