challenges and difficulties
Jonathan Richman has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Richman knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Jonathan Richman may be something of a hypochondriac also. Jonathan must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
Richman is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Jonathan Richman does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.

Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Richman's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature.

Jonathan Richman has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
