Perfectionism is a stone gargoyle ready to pounce as soon as it is woken up by the sound of a gong the way Mushu rouses stone dragons. Time flees unnoticed until you are late, bleeding, weigh less than 90 pounds, 112% correct, or feel like blowing stuff up.
It brings out the OCB (obsessive compulsive behavior) in you and doesn’t lose its grip until it’s made red marks on your shoulders. Its grip is more powerful than the grip of Fear or Anger and weighs heavier than Mjölnir.
Again, it demands, incessantly. And you have no choice but to obey.
