FOCUS ON WHAT YOU DO WELL ✨
Perfectionists are always on the lookout for flaws or mistakes. Because of this negative bias, they minimise, dismiss or completely fail to notice all the things they are doing really well while they instead focus on every tiny thing that is not perfect.
Take time each day to deliberately notice your positive achievements and successes. Begin to pay attention also to the examples of imperfection that are all around you that you still love and appreciate.
REMEMBER - DONE IS BETTER THAN PERFECT 💫
As the saying goes, ‘Aim for progress, not perfection’. Press publish on that blog post. Go to bed even if the dishes aren’t done. Submit the assignment.
The only people who will judge you for not being ‘perfect’ are other perfectionists projecting their own fears onto you, and while your ‘good enough’ work is making a difference in the world, their ‘not quite ready yet’ is helping no one.
You do you boo 🤍
