Identify Why You Feel the Need to Be Perfect
 
First, ask yourself why you need to be perfect at everything you do. Are you simply scared of being wrong, messing up in front of your friends and family, or afraid of judgment?

Start to pay attention to the things you think about and focus on when you start to over-analyze and stress. These are the keys to why you want to be perfect. Maybe you want to impress your boss, or your family relies on you and one mess-up means a missed bill. Figure it out and then find ways to make these situations easier to combat stress and anxiety.
 
Ask Yourself, "Are You Being Realistic, Honestly?"
 
Search your mind and heart and ask yourself whether you are legitimately realistic. Is this something you would expect from others without a bonus or some kind of perk for finishing the work?
