What If Your Goal was Progress, Not Perfection?
What if your goal was progress, not perfection?
What if your motto was practice makes progress, and not practice makes perfect?
If your goal is to be perfect, you will have a hard time starting. Fear will slow you down, and you will start telling yourself, “ I need the perfect technique, the perfect website, the perfect college degree, etc.”
These excuses are lies, but they are so convincing. They are compelling because they confirm your suspicion that you are not ready yet. These lies won’t find anyone to challenge them because most people around you won’t invalidate these lies for you because they have them too.
What if you measure progress instead? What if you tell these lies that you are going to get started today? What if you decide to surround yourself with people who inspire you to be more and do more?
I know that you have an idea in your head that you like to start, a relationship that you like to restore, a book that you want to write. I know that fear of failure is slowing you down and hindering your progress.
Start today; do not worry about perfection, rejection, or editing. Just start.
