The obsessive pursuit of perfectionism in academia...and how to get rid of it
I found this narrative beautiful and relatable - An academic sharing her epiphany on her expectations of perfectionism from herself and those around her. What I liked most was the author's emphasis on what senior/teaching academics can do to help students work on their tendency to be obsessive perfectionists to the point where it leads to
show lack of interest in life, give up easily, and develop mental health issues.
Have a read and let me know what you think.
