Judy Dang: Precision and Productivity, Not Perfectionism

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Judy Dang discuss:

  • Moving past the perils of perfectionism. 
  • Embracing imperfection and being open to failures. 
  • Findings from Judy’s upcoming book, Perfect Enough
  • Getting comfortable with precision, not perfection. 


Key Takeaways:

  • You are successful despite your perfectionism, not because of it. 
  • Perfectionists tend to be more motivated and engaged at work, however, the disadvantages far outweigh those positives – burnout, anxiety, and depression among them. 
  • There is a difference between healthy striving and perfectionism. 
  • Most of the tasks you do can be judged by pass or fail, rather than a specific grade. Not everything needs to be done to absolute perfection. 


“Perfectionism is rooted in a fear, failure, and feelings of inadequacy.” —  Judy Dang
