A word to the wise about starting a blog or any other project you have on your to-do list. Just get after it and start it! I’ve been chasing perfection for too long and it’s time I put my expectations aside, just start and see what I can make of it.
I’ve always thought of my persistence to do things the “right” way as a strength. But throughout the years I’ve have realized, this wastes a lot of time and energy because there isn’t only one way to do things. For example, starting this blog. I thought I needed to have every single detail of my brand figured out, the perfect color pallet, the perfect social media accounts, and the perfect clear message to my readers and clients. Yes, I’m still striving towards all of those things but I know, perfect isn’t a reality. There’s always going to be something I want to change or improve on so I made the leap and started. I know where I want to go and I know the steps I should take to get there. It’s not going to be a perfect journey but it’s my story.
So I guess my message to you today is to not let your perfectionism get in YOUR way. There isn’t a person out there that doesn’t have insecurities or things they want to improve on. That is what makes us all unique. Let’s all just take a deep breath and go for it!
