I always thought that a perfectionist always did things perfectly. But over the years, I have discovered (through personal experience) that a perfectionist may never get anything done! In my effort to be perfect, It took me literally HOURS to begin to write my very first blog. I wanted my WordPress theme and design to be PERFECT! I wanted the layout to be unique and uniquely me! However, in my attempt to be perfect, this first blog was never going to get started! Have you ever experienced this? Have you ever been crippled by the desire for everything to be in place before you got started?
Well ….. the answer to my problem is to just start writing. The “look and feel” of the blog site can be changed later if necessary. The most important thing is that my words get typed. In fact, without words, there is no blog! So my encouragement to my readers (and to myself) is to keep moving forward! Keep taking the next step. Don’t wait until everything is perfect, even though that is my heart’s desire.
If you can relate to my thoughts, I’d love to hear from you!
