I was just looking at the last few posts I’ve written and realized that I have been holding back from writing more because I didn’t have the perfect thing to say…
I wanted to be able to add to several previous blog entries and actually wrote none as I realized I had left some loose threads.
So where did that leave me (and you, good readers)? Well, nowhere, actually.
If you get a chance read this article from Psychology Today: http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/happiness-in-world/201106/why-perfect-is-the-enemy-good
I used to think that every blog entry I wrote had to be, in some fashion, perfect – the perfect message, the perfect summation of my experience, the perfect eye-catching bit o’wisdom.
What I’ve discovered is a number of writers out there who are posting daily (or nearly so) and who captivate with the genuineness of what they say. Do they have valuable content? Absolutely. But they simply tell you, they speak to you, they don’t seek to impress or boggle you.
So, that’s where today’s post came from – my heart, not my brain.
Do I hope you get something from this for your well-being? Hell, yes! Don’t let your efforts be wasted by denigrating their value. Maybe they aren’t exactly what you wanted at the time but you achieved something, you worked for and toward something, and THAT is an accomplishment.
I’m not recommending half-assed efforts or not caring about what you do enough to push for excellence, I’m simply saying that perfect rarely is.
