One of the biggest downsides of being a perfectionist is that you don’t want to start things until you know you can definitely achieve them.
You want all the information, you want to know it’s a sure thing and you don’t want to commit until you know you can achieve it.
But the time will never be just right – start now.
Not on Monday morning, not after you’ve settled into your new place, not after you’ve quit your job, not after you’ve found a boyfriend, not after you’ve bought new workout clothes, not after you read 20 blog posts about it.
You already have all the information you need to get started so just make the decision and go.
The perfect time is now
Waiting until you know you can do something perfectly is not going to get you anywhere. You actually need to try it instead of just dreaming about.
Yeah, you might not be perfect the first time but at least now you’re getting somewhere – you have something to work with and you can iterate and iterate and iterate until you get there.
Dreaming big is the first step but you can’t just stop there. Start trying to live your dreams today, even if you don’t know if it will work out.
Just give it a go.
What do you think?
Is there anything you’ve been putting off until the time is ‘just right’?
