Perfect Disney

     Roy P Disney said to N Gabler, at D23, that Walt only had two gears, obssession and indifference. Walt Disney was a perfectionist and perfectionism, in common with singlemindedness, requires  the capacity to give oneself fully to what one is doing. 
     It concerns that posture of no self-sparing, coherence and synchrony with what one is doing. 
 It concerns the unforgiving dignity of only giving one's best.

     With such intensity, could a perfeccionist have room for the gear of tepidness, or lukewarmness, or "let's take it out of the way" that most people do?
