Sometimes I get in my head when I start a new project. Part of me feels it has to be “perfect” – I know perfection does not exist, and that perfection is the lowest standard.
I still spend a lot of time trying to make things PERFECT to the point where I end up doing nothing.
Tony Robbins and others call this – analysis paralysis.
Dealing with this has taught me alot about myself.
My self truths about achieving perfection:
- Perfection is an excuse to stall.
- Stalling keeps me from putting myself out there.
I also found that when I obsess about perfection whatever I work on gets complex.
My solution is to keep it simple and execute.
In most cases Simplify and Execute works for me. Keeping it simple keeps me from making things complex and increases the chances I execute.
- What are you working on?
- Is there anything you can do to simplify and execute promptly?
