Let Go of Your Need for Perfection

I'm still recovering from a flu I had since Tuesday last week.

For the past week, I haven't been able to post my updates on my blog on time. I usually post at 6:30 in the morning.

Now that I'm feeling much better (although I'm still not at one hundred percent), I realized that I missed posting on time not really because I was sick, but because I'm not used to writing when I'm not feeling perfectly fine.

I was able to post at 6:30am only two out of six times from Wednesday to Monday.

When things are not going my way, most of the time, I simply remain there and I get stuck.

I know I'm a bit tough on myself, but perfection became my excuse.

Because I wasn't feeling perfect, I didn't write.

Because I didn't feel perfectly motivated, I didn't write.

Because I felt my writing was far from perfect, I didn't write.

When circumstances are not perfect, I do not take action.

And I don't think I'm the only one who uses perfection as an excuse.

Many of us always wait for the perfect timing.

To take the leap.

To pursue that person.

To chase after that dream.

I believe in the right timing. But, the right timing is never perfect. It will never come. That's why many people remain stuck still waiting for the perfect timing.

We just have to jump in and try to perfect things along the way. Although, nothing can ever be perfect. So, pursue excellence instead.

Let us let go of our need for perfection before we take action. Instead, let us take action and figure things out as we go.
