Done is Better Than Perfect

Yep. This mantra has been life-changing for me over the past few years.

As a recovering perfectionist, I can go at something a zillion times to try to get it “ready enough.” I am all for high standards for oneself, but not when it becomes prohibitive to sharing my work. Not anymore.

Today’s blog post was another video I made. This one from day two. Again, not sent.

But today, it’s message applies as I was in a similar situation. I was asked to take on more and I said “Yes!” I am so glad I did. Stretching doesn’t always feel good in the moment, but over time, the benefits outweigh the discomfort.

And in the spirit of following through – of not holding on to something I made just because it isn’t perfect or I am not “made up enough” or I am second-guessing it because it is a week late (who do I think is coming, the internet police?), I am posting it today.

What will you say yes to today? How will you stretch tomorrow? Anything you are sitting on that it is time to let go of, let it fly into the world?
