亲爱的灵魂伴侣,

I call 您 this because I know 您. I know the thoughts that run through 您r head, because 他们 are mine. And I have been buried 晚的ly. I have learned a few lessons, and I thought today would be a good time to share them.

First, 您 should know that I have only given myself 25 minutes to write this. The technique comes from something called the Pomodoro Method, a way of pushing 您rself to move quickly through a task. I would link 您 to it, but I need to keep writing. 没有 rmally when I write a piece, it takes me hours. 那’实际上是缸;这需要我几天又几天。一世’m never finished; it’永远都不够好。我坐在这把椅子上的身体感到疼痛,屋子里的杂乱无章地堆积在我周围,我的灰白根变得越来越明显,我的孩子需要我的注意,但工作需要。工作。它需要我更多的关注。

I have set for myself an unwritten rule that I will always, always have fresh content on my site every week. Once a week, never farther apart than that. But if 您 look at the date of this post, then at the one that came before it, 您’自从我最近的帖子以来,已经过去了11天。这十一天对我来说是一种折磨,因为我看着自己强加的标准无济于事。一世’我知道在一个项目的中间将会很棒…no, I just 认为 it’s going to be great…anyway, it’比我想象的要花更多的时间。如此多的运动部件我想做的恰到好处,我可以’t let it go. I can’t call it 够好了 and move on. But my 最后期限。我现在是我自己的老板,我规定了自己的截止日期,但我仍然一直在工作并考虑工作。

And I have seen 您 do the same thing. I have heard 您r stories about staying up until 2, then getting up again at 4 to continue, and still feeling unsatisfied, like 您’re 只是勉强清理足够 . I have told 您 to go for mediocre on some 东西. 您 have to. 您 have to make the decision that it can’全部都是加号工作。

但是,即使我这样说,我也知道真相。我知道我自己’m 认为ing, 那’对其他人很好,但对我却不行。 是, I have had to settle for mediocre when it comes to the domestic arts—my cooking, cleaning, and home décor are not much to write home about. There’院子里有很多需要捡拾的狗屎。我需要新衣服。我是否提到了灰色的根源?很多东西需要工作。但是作品本身呢?我的东西’试图用我的名字投放世界吗?不可以’t be just 够好了. It’对于其他所有人来说,成为B级以上的学生都很好。一世’我会整日鼓励自己,听起来好像我对事物确实有一个平衡的看法。

但它’撒谎。所以我知道我知道了。

但在这儿’最近几天发生的事情:我丢了球。我一个星期的截止日期来了又去了,当我看着它快要过去时,七天变成了八天,然后是九天和十天,一种和平的感觉笼罩着我。没什么坏事。我的收件箱没有’充满以下问题“Where’s the new blog post?” or “What happened to 您?” or “I’m never reading 您r stuff again! What a letdown!”不。没有。世界一直在移动,因为其他所有人也都在忙。

我知道有些截止日期很确定,有些失误会造成严重后果,但是那’s not what I’m talking about. I’我说的是对我可以拒绝的事情说“是”,然后坚持要按照一定的标准来做,然后反正踢自己,因为最终,我仍然发现工作中存在缺陷。

就在上周,我女儿在数学作业上遇到了麻烦。她应该想到一个词问题,使用了她以前没有的概念’不太熟悉。她要我帮助她,但我不能’也不能弄清楚。我不’从来不想这么帮助我的孩子做作业 ’我实际上是为他们做的,所以如果有一些小推特’为了不让他们过驼峰,我通常会建议他们离开,并告诉他们的老师’不知道该怎么做。我的女儿对此感到震惊。

没有!她说。 I’ll get a bad grade!

So what, I told her. Who cares if 您 lose a few points?

我知道她在想什么: 我班上成绩最高。我得到直A’s. I can’不要把它留空。大家会怎么想?

And this is what I told her: If the 班上最聪明的孩子 gets an answer wrong or can’t do a problem, 您 know what that is? It’给其他人的礼物,亲爱的您’re letting everyone else know that 是, the problem was indeed way too hard, even for 您. 您 are showing them you’re human. 您’re showing them 他们’re not crazy or stupid. It was a hard problem, too hard maybe. People who create assignments make mistakes, too. But the only way 他们 know it is if most people have trouble with it. If 您 and I worked on this problem for another 40 minutes and I helped 您 figure out a way to answer it correctly, then 您 waltzed into class tomorrow with the only correctly answered problem in the class, that tells the teacher that this problem wasn’毕竟不可能。 做到了,那为什么不能’t everyone else? But if 您 couldn’t? If even 有麻烦吗?那’这表明也许没有期望’t realistic. Maybe 您r teacher would have taken another look at that problem and realized it needed revision.

我只花了一点时间就听到自己在说话,意识到这是我需要听到的信息。

尽管获得了这种认可,我仍然花了一个星期来听。当我看着自己的最后期限来来去去时,我听到自己对女儿说: 您r failure is a gift to everyone else。但是我自己的自我坚持: 对其他所有人都足够好,但对我却不行.

然后终于点击了。随着人们对错过最后期限的恐惧成为现实,我开始对此表示欢迎。如果我发布了该怎么办 没有这个星期?如果迟到了三四天,或者我跳过了整整一周,该怎么办?我可能稍后会回想一下,是的,这是艰难的一周。那是我参加Google云端硬盘课程的那一周,其他所有事情都崩溃了。我意识到我不得不说的那一周 没有 多做些,少做些,减慢我的步伐。一切都还好。

我只剩一分钟了,所以我’与此结束:请把球丢在东西上。去做就对了。您’会意识到世界赢了’t end. Everyone else will make slight adjustments in their expectations of 您, and those expectations will be more realistic, and 他们’ll see that 您 are human, too, and everything will get better. The sucky thing about being the best at something is that 您 have to keep being the best or 您 lose.

It’将球保持在空中,’困难的部分。丢弃它们可能令人难以置信。

我的时间’s up. Love 您.

 

p.s. After my 25 minutes , I went back and edited and added stuff. Clearly, the move away from perfectionism will be slow and gradual. I just thought 您 should know that.


 

保持联系。
I would love to have 您 come back for more. 加入我的邮件列表 and get weekly tips, tools, and inspiration—in quick, bite-sized packages—all geared toward making 您r teaching more effective and joyful.

    是, I admit it, I was wondering when 您r next post would arrive. After losing my private school teaching job of thirteen years, I decided to pursue certification for a full time position at a public elementary school. The past eight months has been a journey of revelations and discoveries about my teaching abilities and philosophy. 您r blog has been an indispensable guide. I look forward to 您r updates, both on 您r blog, and on 脸书. Therefore, when time passed without a weekly update, I did begin to wonder, maybe even worry. But, like 您 said in today’s post, it is good to know that 您’re human, and that 您 make the same mistakes I do.

    But then I discovered that earlier with 您r brutally honest post about 您r experience with three angry students. I have hurt my students, too.

    Great work, and thank 您.

    • 嗨,理查德。我可以’t decide if knowing 您 were wondering about the missing post feeds my anxiety further or makes me happy. I 认为 I’ll go with the latter. Thank 您!

    • 卡琳 说:

      就像其他许多评论一样,您在写关于我的文章。我也是NBCT。我目前正在攻读资优教育的硕士学位,隶属于我所在州的教学领导力公司,在这里,我们作为老师负责教师的专业发展。我是工会的董事会成员,也是州教师工会的代表,并为我的学区举办从ELA到科学与工程的所有培训。目前,我正在帮助收集签名以召回我们的一位学校董事会成员。我每天都感到超负荷,我可能会裂开并感到神经衰弱。我的问题就像你的一样…在工作上,我有点完美主义者。像您一样,我的家庭责任也受到影响,甚至和我的孩子在一起也是如此。一世’非常感谢我的丈夫支持我的所有努力,在漫长的时间和许多周末度过的工作中,或者在我的教室和学生上花费了无数的金钱,我丝毫没有悲伤。我已经开始对任何事情说不,但我对此感到内。我想帮助所有人,并在那里为他们提供支持。对于像我们这样的成就卓著的教育者来说,这项工作中最令人失望的部分是没有别人的支持。我有一些同事告诉我他们对我所做的一切表示赞赏,而另一些同事则说负面的话并使我为所有额外的工作而失望。有时候,这是这项工作中最令人头疼的部分,而不是课程计划,评分等。感谢您阅读此博客和您的其他博客。要知道有像我这样的完美主义者在试图做到这一切的同时仍然说有些理智在安慰自己。我为您所做的一切表示赞赏!继续前进!

      • 嗨,卡琳,

        我可以与那种努力工作但仍然对某些人还不够的感觉有关。一世’m finding that there is something liberating about knowing those people will always be negative; almost like a free pass to do what 您 want, because 您 will never please them. 这里’s something else I’m starting to figure out: If 您 are always everyone’s go-to person because 您 get 东西 done, 他们 will KEEP COMING TO YOU TO GET THINGS DONE. 那’s not good. Being a slacker in some key areas of 您r life means someone else gets to shine, and 您’重新摆脱困境。所以在这里’s the question for 您: What can 您 slack on?

        • 卡拉·J·卡普林格 说:

          如此真实。关于先前的评论–if 您 are good at handling something, people will continue to expect more of the same and give 您 even more. I have stepped down from a club I help run because the year is overwhelming. Thanks for this timely blog post.

      • 西塔吉里 说:

        感谢分享–去年我踩下了脚–准确地说是18个月前。生活越来越好–世界并没有终结,我的工作质量也没有下降。
        没有 w, I am 严重 about my work, not about myself.

    • 特蕾西·麦卡特尼(Tracey McCartney) 说:

      Haha! I appreciate this 文章, and especially love the P.S. I totally get where 您’re coming from, as I’用同样的方式ðŸ™,

    • 凯西 说:

      ðŸ™住的话
      谢谢!

    • 宝拉 说:

      Thank 您 仁- this post couldn’t have possibly come at a better time for me. Thank 您 for dropping the ball!

    • 卡拉·法恩斯特伦 说:

      Hi 珍ifer, I wanted to thank 您 for two reasons. Number 1 is I am starting school tomorrow and I am feeling overwhelmed so 您r post was very much appreciated.
      The second thank 您 is for 您r Google Drive Basic Courses (which she mentioned in this post). I have so much to learn about the technology to teach remotely, I had to start some where and I knew 您 resources would be good. Also, I want what I am learning to make be a better teacher in the real classroom also. 您r Google Drive Courses are so well done. 您 made the information easy for me to understand and gave it in segments that I could digest and practice. 您 speak a lot in 您r podcasts about good teaching practices and the courses were full of them. 您 are doing very valuable work and it is very much appreciated. Thank 您.

  2. 嗯….hello?! 您 in there. Ms. Gonzalez? How on earth did 您 get into my head? Oh, 是, of course: through the many stress-induced cracks in my skull. Overachievers, unite.

    I am a 13-year ELA teacher (NBCT like 您 –是的ðŸ™,休假一年,希望这段时间能把我从倦怠的边缘拉回来。我非常想回到教学中,但是13年的认真意愿未能为我提供一个令人满意的答案:“只是勉强清理足够 ”教育的压倒性需求,更重要的是,每个学生的迫切需求?

    I look forward to reading more and exploring 您r site.

  3. I read all of 您r posts religiously, and devour them the second I receive them.
    我不’t notice 您r publishing schedule. I did not know that 您 dropped the ball. Only 您 knew that. I did not care.
    我喜欢这些帖子,希望他们继续前进,但我赢了’t set my watch by them. And I hope 您’没关系,因为我以一位老师/父母对另一位老师/父母的爱心和尊重来说。

  4. I feel like 您 wrote this blog specifically for me! I can definitely empathize with the taking on too much and feeling like everything I do needs to be perfect! I love the example that 您 gave with 您r daughter – thank 您! As I was reading it, I found myself 认为ing that I would tell my child the exact same thing; yet, like 您, I hold myself to a different standard. I teach second grade and I tell my students all of the time that it is okay to make mistakes. 那 is how we learn. Yet I can’当我犯错时,不要忍受。我有罪,因为我没有在学校工作的一个晚上上班,一直熬到凌晨2点才感到内’我的任务做对了。我永远都不会期望我的学生能够自己经历这一过程。
    为什么我们还要打扰“C”在教室成绩?“C”应该是平均水平,但是’s not 够好了. We have to get an “A,” or at least a “B.” What’s wrong with being average? And what message are we sending to our children that average is not 够好了?!? I guess I am just beating myself up right now for being one of the many “overachievers” that 您 are referring to. If I expect perfectionism out of myself, I need to learn how 说that magic word “no.”

    • 喂仁关于完美主义者的有趣之处在于,我们’非常善于击败自己,我们’甚至会打败自己成为完美主义者,并批评我们懈怠的能力。它’s horrible! I hope this is able to help 您 choose a few areas in 您r life to be completely average at, and enjoy that feeling.

  5. 艾米·马丁内洛(Amy Martinello) 说:

    对对对!!!!!!你是为我写的!我今年的目标不是成为一个“Yes”女孩!不幸的是,我分散了自己的力量,今年已经被学校的许多委员会聘用。但是,从好的方面来说,这迫使我对许多其他人说不。“opportunities”否则我会同意。当我被迫陷入困境时,这也迫使我捍卫自己并为自己站起来。不,我不会为自己的教室带去更多的工作,这样我就可以把宝贵的时间浪费在做这些琐碎的事情上。不,放学后一个半小时我不会与您见面,放弃与自己家人的时间。不,我认为我们不需要让这些学生参加另一项标准化考试。我可以’t agree. I can’t stay. I do not have time to baby-sit 您r more-than-capable student who chooses not to persevere. I have almost 30 students in each of my classes. I need my time to be respected as well! 是! I needed to hear 您r words tonight! THANK YOU!

    • 我曾经听到过一些很好的建议,那就是不要混蛋。你只是说“I’对不起,我的日程安排赢了’现在不要允许它。” And that’是的。然后安静,不要’提供更多解释。它’就像速降:’s really scary to take the first step over the edge of the cliff, but once 您’re over it, it gets a whole lot easier. I hope 您 are able 说it a lot more from now on!

  6. 我记得我第一次允许自己错过最后期限。那是我参加的代言课程中的一次班级决赛。这句话没有流淌,我拒绝参加低于标准的工作,所以我叫教授去理智。它真的很强大。大地继续旋转,第二天太阳升起,我处于和平状态。每个人,尤其是完美主义者,都应该尝试一下。

    • 你知道,自从我写这篇关于“serious” 最后期限s, 东西 that have more significant consequences than being 晚的 on a blog post. Like not turning in work for a class and ending up with a lower grade because of it. Or someone who is pursuing something like National Boards or a PhD and not being able to keep up with everything on the timeline 他们 originally set for themselves. The consequences for those definitely seem more devastating, but even those I 认为 can be liberating once 您 start to let go of the idea 您 have of 您rself, the “班上最聪明的孩子” or its equivalent…to decide 您’这次将变得平庸。它’的谦卑,使我们对他人更具同情心。谢谢分享,帕姆。

  7. 克里斯·博伊兹敦 说:

    哇!我今天丢了球。我不得不为一次会议提供便利,而周五没有我的先决条件!我没有让我感到尴尬’做不到。我什至不得不手工写它,因为我在组装过程中写了它–孩子们离开后,聚会马上举行了。我迅速将其复制了10次,并将其放置在桌子中间。每个人都很客气,但我讨厌我没有’t do what we had “agreed” upon. 什么 happened? The meeting proceeded, stuff was decided, the meeting ended. The world did not collapse. I really need to let balls drop more often. Thank 您 a million times for this post. I shall practice ball dropping for the rest of the year! It’您将需要大量练习才能做到无罪!

  8. 我喜欢这个。虽然是专业的懒汉(I’我什至不去检查我的专业拼写是否正确,)我确实对博客文章大惊小怪–想要他们完美… which 他们 can’因为第二天’m sure I’无论如何,我都会改变主意,不同意自己。所以我只是不’t blog- I only guess blog. I love this post. It reminded me of this song. Please sing along when 您’re feeling over-stressed. Love 您r work ðŸ™, Les //www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLkTrLvIb3g

    我昨天病了一天,所以我可以给论文打分,写推荐信,因为我不能’既要教我的课程,又要完成我的其他工作。一世’这些论文已经有一个星期了,可以’没给他们打分再归还,我晚上醒来,想着他们。它’s now it’s Saturday, and I’m at work. And I’m trying to create the perfect lesson on creating complex sentences and punctuating them properly, but to do that, I would need to create some fresh new handouts instead of using the old ones I already have. So I just want to tell 您, 仁, that today, as I look at this pile of papers and this stack of letters I need to write and these lessons I need to plan about Romeo and Juliet and transcendentalism (and I 认为 about my children at home with their dad and wish I were there with them) that I really, really needed this. In fact, this post was so good it made me tear up a little.

  15. 乔·弗格森 说:

    I read 您r blog regularly and really enjoy it! 我不’t notice if it is “late” and hope 您 feel entitled to take breaks from time to time. ðŸ™,
    我也给自己带来困难,有时会急于发送一些最终使我畏缩的东西。这是优先事项的一种平衡行为!

  16. 乔西 说:

    我真的很需要这个一世’我是一名四年级老师,刚刚从私立中学(过去三年)过渡到公立高中,我’我一直在竭尽全力地试图处理我非常不同的学生和我非常不同的内容,并且官僚机构和现场人员的水平也不同,这决定了我“effectiveness ” as a teacher. I’六个星期后,我开始思考是否真的要教书了。我感觉又像头一年’我因为今年的表现差强人意而击败自己。从理智上讲,我认识到改读一所新学校和一个新的年级是很困难的,需要很长的宽限期,但是我心中的完美主义者却在尖叫,“you’re not 够好了.” Thank 您 for this reminder. Thank 您 for the permission to allow myself some mediocrity at least for a while. I still need to internalize that permission, but it helps to hear it.

    • 乔西, it sounds like a challenging transition! If 您 click on “Resources”在那里,然后去“Books,” 您’ll find a book called Awakened. I strongly suggest 您 get a copy for 您rself. It’s such good training for changing 您r self-talk to a voice that’更加现实和逻辑。当我需要重新设置精神时,我仍然会一直坚持下去。
      我的一个最好的朋友实际上在工作仅两天后就辞去了教学工作,直到今天,我仍将其归咎于她的完美主义。她只是不能’承受压力。从那时起,我意识到拥有完美主义倾向是老师的责任。…there are SO. MANY. WAYS. TO. FAIL. Therefore, people who are better able to shrug 东西 off now and then have the resilience to survive. I hope 您 can get there.

  17. 奇基塔·亚当斯(Chiquita Adams) 说:

    Thank 您 so much! I, too, constantly feel the weight of this unnamed, mammoth pressure to meet 最后期限s and live up to unrealistic expectations for myself. And, God forbid, if 我不’见不到他们,我感觉很糟糕…。叹。这就是生活。随着我的成长,学习和变得更好,我继续宽恕自己,并了解到,任何时候,任何人都不可能成为所有人的一切— except Jesus. Thank 您 for 您r candor and brutal honesty. It truly is invaluable to me. Keep doing what 您 do! 您’re awesome!

  18. 颂歌 说:

    I enjoyed reading 您r post. It reminded me of this Stephen Covey quote.

    “You have to decide what 您r highest priorities are and have the courage…愉快地,微笑地,非自然地…to say ‘no’ to other 东西. And the way 您 do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside.”

    I’一位巴西的完美主义者,控制狂和不知所措的老师,正在考虑戒烟… These words were everything I needed to read. I just need to drop the ball, trust that everythig is going to be allright, and say NO more often. Thank 您 so much for 您r words, I love 您r blog and 您r posts, even if 您 post new 东西 once a week, I’仍然会读它们!来自一位热情的巴西老师的爱!

  21. 法比安娜 说:

    我的意思是在先前的评论中说一个月,对不起! ðŸ™,

  22. 琼妮·P。 说:

    We need to have boundaries in our professional and personal lives in order to keep ourselves balanced and at our best. Perfectionism does not allow us to be our best, and leads to burn-out. What a great letter this is to those of us who can relate so well. Thank 您!
    P.S.- Any time 您 want or need to take a break, please do. I, for one, will be proud of 您 for that.

  23. 玛丽安 说:

    Should 您 ever find 您rself on the southwest coast of Florida, I will drop all kinds of balls and take 您 out for milkshakes or margaritas or both. I needed to hear this tonight. Big thanks, and a big hug.

  24. 丹妮丝 说:

    感谢您的开放。它使我对自己的品牌(如“Over Achiever-ness” that I tend to let weigh me down. But no longer! Finally, I give 您 permission NOT to respond to my post!

    喜欢这篇文章!这正是我在期待感恩节假期时需要阅读的内容!

  27. 乌马安 说:

    亲爱的作家,

    我已经从这个阶段发展到临床抑郁症,到一个我会错过最后期限而不为他们工作的阶段。应对抑郁症使我在事情上变得轻松自如。但猜猜怎么了? Evem随和的事情让我不高兴。在与治疗师的最后一次会谈中,我告诉她我想回到过去。我想我什么都没取得。

    Learning 说没有。 Learning to be satisfied with the mediocre –这是一个挑战!即使有简单的出路,我们的卓越者和完美主义者也会为自己选择困难!

    感谢您写下来。提醒我吧!平庸的ðŸ™,是可以的

    • Hi 乌马安. 您 know, I never really put this inside the context of clinical depression. I guess it could be a slippery slope if 您 start to let so many 东西 fall between the cracks that it becomes a way of life, and 您 then feel like 您’什么都没做。如此艰巨的平衡。

  28. 林赛·便士 说:

    Thank 您 so much…即使是两年后的今天,这篇文章仍然有意义,是我与我服务的那些不认识的学生分享的内容’t know how 说“No”或需要完美…我深感共鸣。

    Thank 您 for being the 您 that would share 您r thoughts with the world so we too can learn from them.

    触摸!感觉与原始文字和许多回复非常吻合!!
    Have also got to the same conclusions after 20 years in teaching and teacher training, and five thousand other 东西!

    Like the idea of putting a time limit on 东西… will try that!!
    Thank 您 for being human😊

  30. 詹妮弗(Jennifer)在这方面肯定有一些真理。

    I beat myself up sometimes because I look around at all the people I see who seem to working harder than me, and 您 are certainly one of the people I look at frequently. It’s good to sometimes see behind the curtain.

    Also, on a related topic (related to 时间管理 at least) I sent an email a while back to 您 with some questions I wanted 您r perspective on. And I just want to let 您 know that I 认为 您r solution to responding to those emails is genius!

  31. 奥兰达·沃尔佩 说:

    Thank 您 for this authentic and relatable piece. I am sharing it with colleagues who are teachers, administrators, and student support staff. I usually send a “新年快乐(学校)” email. It doesn’没必要说,现在知道大流行已使2020-21年与学生共事的大部分快乐都没有了。

  32. 斯蒂芬妮·泰勒 说:

    Thank 您 so much for 您r words of wisdom! We’我刚刚完成了第三周的面对面学习(高中)。我每天晚上回家时都会哭一点…沮丧/担心我’我今年没有尽我最大的努力。我必须提醒自己,我的学生已经离开教室五个月了。他们不’真的需要专注于阅读理解…他们需要知道我在他们的恐惧和需求中在场。如果球必须掉落…so be it…as long as 我不’t drop a kid!

  33. 凯蒂·贝里希尔(Katie Berryhill) 说:

    How did this post from 5 years ago that was clearly written just for me suddenly show up in my inbox? How did 您 know?!

    我决定在这个大流行的夏天彻底重新设计我的在线课堂(那是在线的大流行前),因为无论如何我必须为我通常面对面的课堂创建一些东西。很多好主意,但行动不力,因为我希望它能成为“perfect.”在开学前一周,进入恐慌/熬夜模式。现在我’我只是想得到“good enough” posted. I’告诉我的学生’re my guinea pigs/beta testers for this new class. And 您 know what? I’我已经在赞美“good enough”版。下车去做番茄。

  34. 梅琳达·特雷德韦 说:

    我今天需要这个!具有COVID和远程学习以及亲自教学。最重要的是,上周第一天,我们在一场悲惨的车祸中失去了一名学生。它’s been rough.

    Thank 您 for 您r permission to drop one or more balls! I needed to hear this!

  35. 玛丽·戴维 说:

    Thank 您- dropping the ball was the perfect thing to do.

  36. Solveig Comer 说:

    Perfect timing! Last spring was overfilled with 最后期限s and dates that passed by without their intended activities taking place or goals being achieved. School closures presented overwhelming losses to me professionally and as a parent. There were so many changes to adapt to so quickly that it was virtually impossible to be 完善。 Thanks for the reminder that we don’t need to be perfect all the time and we have so much to learn and teach through our imperfections.

  37. 朱迪·韦雷斯皮(Judy Verespy) 说:

    OMG I love 您! All the time, but especially now, after reading this particular post. And it’不是因为我是完美主义者。它’因为我总是让球掉落。一世’我擅长我的工作。我有些同事很欣赏我的工作,但我不知道’t 认为 I’我最好(我也不认为他们认为我’我最好的)。但是,从不让球掉下来的完美主义者,他们的房间,桌子和课程总是看起来很完美,有时使我感到有些懈怠。我的意思是,如果他们能做到,我也应该能够,对吗?这篇文章带给我安慰,因为自我称赞“A.plusser” is admitting it’s not necessary and not as easy or stress-free as 他们 make it look. Thank 您.
