Perfection Game - Don't Move a Finger Until You're Perfect!
I read Kyle's blog post yesterday on striving for perfection.
What perfect timing! ;)
For a few weeks now, I've been thinking it was the time to do my first tutorial here.
Had no idea how to do it, and was waiting for the perfect time & the perfect subject.
Well, I waited and waited, nothing perfect came along so, decided to take the plunge yesterday and write it anyway.
The subject matter of my tutorial is so simple; also the tutorial itself is quite short.
I thought it would take me an hour at the most to write it.
Ha! It took me a good part of yesterday to create it, and then....wait for it.... I ERASED IT BY MISTAKE!
The next scene in this short film might be called "Tears of frustration"!
I gave up altogether, but only for a few moments.
Started it again, got everything mixed up this time...
...had to start again!
Finished it this time, and was super happy I did.

STRIVING FOR PERFECTION HOLDS US BACK
(and not saving your work while writing ;) )
Even though, I had to put my writing for the blog here, and for my site on hold yesterday, I feel it was a productive day.
I learned something new, so it was all worth it.
To reiterate Kyle's message: don't wait for perfect conditions, they don't exist.
Just do whatever you need to do, make your mistakes, correct them, and there you have it - the recipe for improvement and success!
In case, you've missed it, here is the link to Kyle's post:
The Plan For Today!
- look after my toddlers
- do the research for the new site blog post
- write a new blog post (this one is going to be long 3000-4000w so might not be able to finish it today, but will try!)
What is your plan for today?
Are you perfect?
Does it matter?
Have a great day wherever you are!
Thank you for reading this post :)
