I have 11 unfinished posts sitting in my “drafts” folder waiting to be completed and shared with the world. Why are they just sitting there? Because I am a god forsaken perfectionist and can’t click the “publish” button until it’s PERFECT! Ugh! I drive myself nuts sometimes.
Being a perfectionist has it’s pros and cons.
I refuse to accept less than stellar work from myself and others.
I’m constantly driving myself to do better and learn more.
Quality over quantity is my mantra.
I refuse to accept less than stellar work from myself and others which means I am very easily disappointed.
I strive for an unrealistic level of excellence that sometimes I end up stagnant because I won’t publish or do anything less than perfect.
Perfectionism breeds anxiety.
I’ve had a lot of inspiration for this blog lately, yet I haven’t published much because I am paralyzed by perfectionism. Perfectionism is holding me back. Perfectionism is prohibiting growth. I need to kick perfectionism in the ass and just start putting myself out there.
This is a moment for the wisdom of Dr. House. Time to start looking stupid and shining because of it.
My goal is to do a “rants & raves” post once a week. Do you think I can do it?
Do you battle with perfectionism paralyzing you? I’d love to hear that I’m not alone.
