Perfect Means Less Progress
The quest for total perfection is exhausting when the pressure to be perfect is not necessary.
The more perfect we think things need to be, the more distracted we are and the less progress we make.
Unrealistic perfectionism clings to this crazy notion that if you can’t do it perfectly the first time and you put it off, magically sometime down the road, you’ll be more intelligent, have more time and do it absolutely perfect.
The serious problem with this logic is that it’s flawed.
The perfect time never comes and your work sits there undone. The vicious perfectionism, procrastination, paralysis cycle continues and feelings of guilt, shame, and intense stress get piled on.
Doing Your Best is Progress
Do your best in your work and your best truly is good enough.
Acknowledge that at the beginning of learning or doing something new, you won’t be good at it. You will never be perfect at something the first time you try it.
Keep at it. Persist and be consistent. Practice and improve. Iterate as you learn.
These are the keys to getting good and "perfecting" a task or new skill and creating a thriving business.
The more you practice being perfectly imperfect, you will see that poisonous perfectionism is not necessary to make progress on achieving your big dreams.
Find your freedom.
Live your life.
