To succeed at Stanford and beyond, it is important to optimize both physical and mental health through healthy lifestyle choices and habits. The A3C iLive series aims to dispel misconceptions, increase awareness, and encourage dialogue about health and well-being topics relevant to Asian Americans, as well as to introduce students to resources on campus. The Asian American Activities Center is a University Department under the Office of the Vice Provost for Student Affairs. For more information visit

Join the discussion and explore the ways you can fight anxiety and perfectionism to work with confidence.

Anxiety & Perfectionism

“Be the best” - as Stanford students, it’s a competitive mantra we've been told since we were young. That notion may have helped get us here and probably followed us into college. But here, believing you have to be the best isn’t a healthy pursuit of excellence. Aiming for excellence should be progressive, not impossible. Striving for perfection leaves a person frustrated, anxious, and overwhelmingly dissatisfied when the outcome doesn’t go as we envisioned. Join us to discuss with Vaden Staff Psychologist Oliver Lin ’93, Ph.D on how to overcome the fear and frustration caused by perfectionism.
