  1. OH, this is so true. Egoism, perfectionism, and the fear of failure and judgement have all kept me from reaching a higher level of achievement and production in my language learning (currently German). I realize that I will pursue (often subconciously) certain activities that I know I can perform relatively well, or at least perform without being judged by others, and avoid other activities, such as speaking my target language aloud, for fear of appearing incompetent or inept. You are definitely right: It is very difficult to remove the ego and perfectionism from the equation. I really enjoy your daily insights, by the way. Take care.
