I loved that story, Honour! Thank you for sharing. 🙂
You’ve helped me see the subtle difference between perfectionism from an art perspective and perfectionism from a logical, science-based perspective.
I consider myself an artist, but I’m also very logical and science-based at heart. Perfectionism for me isn’t so much about creating something that is perfect, but rather reaching that edge where science and logic have done everything they can.
As a scientist, I feel the constant need to stay and search for the edge of everything, but as an artist, I feel the need to constantly create and move forward. What a dichotomy! 🙂
