Send Perfectionism Packing

I've thought about this post for several days, but have put it off. Ironic, but not surprising I suppose, given the topic is perfectionism. As a child, there were so many things I did well, I could afford to be a perfectionist. In high school it became a problem. I almost didn't take AP American History. I didn't take Calculus. Nor would I take Econ because I feared I couldn't get an 'A'. I did get 'A's in the classes I took, but in retrospect, a 'B' in Calculus, rather than no calculus, given my chosen career, probably would have been a decent trade. Enter the workforce.
