⁣This this post I want to talk about perfectionism. ⁣

Many of us have a tendency to never start, never publish or never even try to book the meeting with xxx as we dream of! Why? ⁣

Because we don’t feel ready yet. We don’t feel like we know enough yet (at least that’s one of our excuses), or the timing is not so good at the moment (another excuse) or I’ll go apply for the job or try to book the meeting once I look a little bit more slim. Can you relate? ⁣

Well. Being a perfectionist is a great thing, because it also means that you’re really putting an effort into the things that you’re into. But it can also, at the same time, be a very challenging thing to be a perfectionist and you know why? Because it’s almost impossible to do or create anything perfect and if that’s what you thrive for: wow, please don’t be so hard on yourself! ⁣

Rather make mistakes along the way and learn from them (as Maya Angelou says: when you know better, you do better), than never even getting started. Because that will for sure block all of your dreams. ⁣

Then rather start, when you feel like your product/body/website and so on looks almost exactly how you want it, and then make it even better along the way, as the time passes. ⁣

In this way, you get started, you learn, you can apply your new knowledge to whatever you got started with and in that way: you become better. ⁣

So why am I posting this exact picture? Let me tell you! ⁣

Behind me there’s an ugly yellow and green plastic bag, laying all messy on the floor, because I came straight from the grocery store once I did this picture. So now I have two options: ⁣

1. Not to post it and get stuck, because I find it ugly ⁣

2. To post the picture and hopefully add value to some of you readers. And you know what? It feels great to keep going! So please: go, go, go! xx J⁣
