On a regular basis, I find myself fighting against my own perfectionism to actually get things done. Sometimes it’s that I take FOREVER on my current project, trying to make it just right. Unfortunately, sometimes it’s that I put off starting a project that I’d really like to work on, because I feel that I haven’t taken the time to think through all the minutia… meaning that it’s very unlikely that I’m going to start the project, because I have hundreds of things running through my head on a good day.
This is something that I know about myself and I actively try to combat it. Unfortunately, the more I let myself get bogged down, the more I let this creep in, which only tends to bog me down more. Sigh.
Fortunately for my current set of perfectionism roadblocks, a friend re-tweeted this comic (and the corresponding post) from Incidental Comics:
You hear that perfectionism?!? GET OUT OF MY WAY! I have some cool things to do.
And yes … I had to get that out of my system before I get on getting on.
