PERFECTION?



Do you demand perfection at work? In your family? In your significant other?

In my opinion, nothing is ever truly perfect. You can kill yourself trying to make it so. The drive for perfection can alienate those around you, setting you up for failure. And, make you physically ill.

My character, Heart Surgeon Dr. Stone Lassiter, from THE DOCTOR'S DECEPTION has this flaw when it comes to his work. It isn't until toward the end of the book he realizes what he's been doing and makes changes. But it takes the love of a strong woman to help him see the error of his ways.

But what about you? Trying to find the right balance in your life is a difficult thing to do. Don't obsess about the small stuff. Sometimes, all you need is to take a step back, take a deep breath, and let a few things roll off your shoulders.

It is impossible to control everything. So, look at the broad picture of what is going on in your life. Prioritize, organize, and don't stress about the things you have no control over.

Take Care,
Kathleen
