THE WELLNESS EDITION NO.1 - Progress Is Better Than Perfection
I told myself to make this phrase my new motto. Because, for being honest with you, I am most of the time quite the perfectionist...and to make it even worse, this character trait (which obviously is more an annoying flaw than some of my other strange flaws) in the past would not even get me started in doing something that I want to do...just because knowing that I will most possibly screw it up or not be as good as my damn expectations want me to be.
So, what do we learn from this? That perfectionism is not always a good friend, that perfectionism possibly keeps you even from beginning what your heart and soul long to do and that too much perfectionism even turns you into a procrastinator. So, how do we change it? We just do it! Like Nike already told us in the past. So to lessen the pain of getting started, having the thought in mind that 'progress is better than perfection' really helps. I read this phrase in the newsletter that I receive from Rowan Made and since I liked it so much and I am sure there are so many other wrecked perfectionists like me out there, I just thought I will share it with you in my 'Wellness Edition' which is my self-initiated blog magazine where I focus on the small or maybe even larger things that should make our daily life a little bit better.
