Perfectionism vs Idealism

Do you consider yourself a perfectionist?

Maybe you’re actually an idealist.

There’s a big difference...

Perfectionism is a refusal to accept any standard short of perfection.

Idealism is the practice of pursuing ideals, even if they are unrealistic.

Perfectionism is about rejection.

Idealism is about practice.

Which do you think is more useful?

Yours,
