Rendition: Perfectionist Paralysis

Perfectionist Paralysis:

The inability to start on a project, assignment, essay or any creative task due to the fear of not getting it perfectly right.

Joe: You haven't started writing your paper yet?
Bob: Nope
Joe: Isn't it due tomorrow?
Bob: Yep.
Joe: I thought you went to the library and did your research, made your notes and wrote your outline.
Bob: I've got perfectionist paralysis.
