Tip "Aim for a B-minus"

I once read this tip in a book about perfectionism and have applied it many times with good results. Perfectionism can keep me paralyzed with performance anxiety. If I allow myself to do something to a "good enough" (B-) but not "perfect" (A+) standard, that alone can get me unstuck. And once unstuck, the end product is usually and paradoxically very good, perhaps even excellent.
