We're all trying to do more in less time and feeling overwhelmed as a result. But too many people in business are ineffecient, self-sabotaging perfectionists.

Think of the time and effort you can conserve and redistribute to other tasks. Unlike other negative advice given, to give up your perfectionism, The Perfectionist's Handbook challenges this mindset which makes it unique. Jeff Szymanski tells readers they got the right idea, but you're taking the wrong paths to achieve the outcome you want.The Perfectionist's Handbook teaches the art of being an Adaptive Perfectionist, someone who stands out and gets bigger playoffs: greater productivity with less effort, more energy,and balance in your work and life.
