A guide for getting your perfectionism to work for you
Is perfectionism a good thing or does it get in our way? In The Perfectionist's Handbook, clinical psychologist Jeff Szymanski helps readers navigate their way out of the "perfectionism paradox": if your intentions are good (wanting to excel) and the outcomes you want are reasonable (to feel competent and satisfied), why would perfectionism backfire and result in unhappiness and stress? Learn when perfectionism will pay off, and when and why it sabotages you. Specific strategies are outlined throughout the book to help readers transform their perfectionism from a liability to an asset.
There is no reason to eliminate perfectionism altogether—instead, build on what's working and change what's not. The Perfectionist's Handbook helps readers to:
Distinguish between intention and strategy as a way of improving outcomes
Identify diminishing returns and how to redistribute time and resources
Make the most of mistakes rather than being preoccupied with trying to avoid them
Learn to focus on your "Top 10" list as a way of getting the most out of your life
Access others more effectively as a way of improving performance
Obtain more balance in their lives

Borland C++ Power Programming/Book and Disk It wasn’t too long ago that a hobbyist programmer got by with a monochrome monitor, two floppy drives, 16K of RAM, and a decent understanding of BASIC. Back then, a big program may have comprised 500 lines and taken a few days to write. Even professional programmers—the folks who produced commercial-quality software— had it much...
