Procrastinator or Perfectionist

This is a quote from Joyful Days post. I feel the same way so I am quoting it here. Go there to read the whole post:

Maybe I am a perfectionist. Not perfect (‘coz we know no one but the ONE is perfect) but a perfectionist. Wikipedia's Perfectionism topic gives insight; scroll down to "Negative Aspects."

I see a pattern of putting off things until they can be done right. (And we know how often that occurs.) I see distracting myself until a situation becomes urgent and then just handling it with my usual seat-of-the-pants, duct tape, baling wire, tar, open-minded, relaxed approach with a less than perfect outcome. But I don’t think I am as relaxed as I make myself out to be.

I think I am both a procrastinator and a perfectionist.

Thanks, Liza for the link. I really think you and I would be great neighbors.

I have really been working on just trying to do my best and be happy with that.

Funny when my stress level is lower I get more done.
