So, you should always keep in mind that it is your strength that counts in your life, not the weaknesses and is not it a valid reason for keeping your focus on strength.
Perfectionism is often the root cause of procrastination in life. Being imperfect is what makes us human being, and keeps our mind open to continue learning throughout the life.
