Done Is Better Than Perfect
October 15, 2019
I am a bonfide Virgo. Everything about me is right on par with the description of my Zodiac sign. Doing things perfect is one thing I have to talk myself down from the ledge on. If it doesn’t look exactly right then, I can’t put it out into the world.
But honestly, when is anything going to be perfect. Never. You can work and work on something but it will never be 100% perfect. Words of a type A virgo.
I believe there are times when I self-sabotage because I worry that if I push publish on something that isn’t exactly right, then it’s a failure.
I’ve been working on a media kit for over a week now. This is something that should probably take a couple hours at most, but I couldn’t figure out how to get it just right. Today, I said screw it, it’s time to get this out there. You know what? If changes need to be made or things need to be added along the way then so be it.
Now that it’s out there, I feel a weight off my shoulders.
Another thing that is sitting here staring me in the face to get out into the world are several articles and of course my full length novel.
Seriously, though, what’s the worst thing that could happen. People don’t like it. Oh well, there is always going to be critics and that’s quite alright.
What do you do that self-sabotages you from success?
