I'm having problems with this, I'm aware I put all kinds of pressure on myself to meet my self imposed deadlines. I think this is linked to lots of other issues from my past. Also if I didn't have a deadline my projects could go on forever. Let me explain in my spare time I write compose and arrange music and it can be quite easy to go on forever with a project, because when one is a "perfectionist" I can always say if I just do this or do that I could improve upon it. I realise this seems a pretty insignificant problem, but instinctively I feel this is playing a part in my TMS I have wrestled with this idea and ways to find a happy medium, but so far can't find a solution.. Any ideas ?
