Are You a Perfectionist? Bet You Can’t Be Average for Just One Day

If you try, two things will happen.




Are you a perfectionist, or stressed over achieving high standards? Cognitive therapist David Burns suggests this for a day: “I dare you to try to be ‘average,’” he writes in his bestseller Feeling Good. “Does the prospect seem blah and boring? … I predict two things will happen. First, you won’t be particularly successful at being ‘average.’ Second, in spite of this, you will receive substantial satisfaction from what you do. More than usual.”
