- Publisher *Your daughter greets you at the door with a big grin, dishrag in hand. "Look, Mom! I did the dishes for you!" Hugging your thanks, you glance over her shoulder and obsess about the milk puddles still on the counter. *Your best friend shows up on your doorstep, casserole in hand. "I know you've been really stressed lately. Here's dinner." Taking the dish, you wonder if you have to invite her in...the living room is messy and you have no cookies for tea! *Your neighbor ducks inside whenever he sees you, afraid you will lecture him once again on the encroaching evil of crabgrass. If you recognize yourself in any of these scenarios, you are not alone--although it may feel like it sometimes. Could your overshelming need for perfection be pushing away those you most want to be close to? In "Why Do I Put So Much Pressure On Myself," Kathy Collard Miller explores the mindset behind such unrealistic expectations. She then explains the One Percent Prinicple that will enrich our relationships, de-stress our lives, and boost our confidence. Most importantly, she points out that God does not expect perfection, and shows us how we can reprogram ourselves to live up to his gently plan...instead of our own frantic agendas.

- Publisher Miller, a self-described "recovering perfectionist", encourages women and men to examine whether they, too, have perfectionistic tendencies, exhibited by unrealistic expectations of themselves and others, an "all or nothing" approach to daily tasks and a propensity to raise the achievement bar ever higher, among other traits. (One intriguing chapter discusses how perfectionists feel "compelled to straighten out misunderstandings" and cannot let go of "the small stuff".) Many readers will recognize themselves in these pages, particularly in the recurring anecdotes about women who struggle to be perfect mothers. Miller offers a sound reminder of God's grace to those who strive to earn divine and human approval.
