Getting Things Done/ The Trouble with Perfectionism

I am a recovering perfectionist. This is me with no makeup and my crazy hair, that will never do anything I want, just as I am right now sitting in this chair writing.

IMG_0634As I sit here, I have 22 post drafts I have not published because they need to be edited more. This may be true. They may really need some editing because I have a tendency to restate things several times in slightly different ways. To me, this is coloring in fine shades of the picture, but to most this is rambling and not getting to the point. I write and re-write trying to say things the perfect, most concise and impactful way, but when have I arrived? And when am I just stalling because perhaps I am a bit afraid to put my thoughts out there for the world to read? In my head I hear pretty much everyone I have ever known’s perspective and reaction to my writing as I write it, and I feel the need to respond to all of these comments before anyone makes them. But this is the internet, you probably didn’t come to this blog looking got read a thesis.

So, from now on I am putting it out there. I have things to say and they are not doing anyone any good sitting on my computer where no one can read them or react to them. I will not answer all objections upfront and qualify everything. So please bear with my a little if I get a bit redundant, and feel free to use the comments to pick on my spelling, grammar, ideas or my hair…
