I struggle with indecision, and as a result of that, inaction. I think things over and look at things from 52 different ways until I’m so exhausted that I don’t do anything.
Like posting on my blog: I’ll think about it, maybe even jot down some ideas, but I get overwhelmed with my thoughts and start second-guessing myself and then (you guessed it), not post anything.
It’s frustrating. I do that in other areas too.
We did a little makeover in our home office and I’m stuck not knowing how to organize things in there. Things are in boxes all over the place, but I just can’t figure out where they should go!
Then I discovered Pinterest. Wow! There are so many wonderful decorative, crafty, and organizational ideas on there, it’s mind-boggling. But here’s the thing. I’ve got to quit looking at what other people have done and just START.
The perfectionist in me wants to be sure that I’ve found the BEST way to organize and set-up the room, but I know I’m just stuck. I’ve got to quit looking at ideas and START.
My mom has often told me, “Just do something, even if it’s wrong!”
I guess I’ve been a procrastinating perfectionist all my life.
Jeff Goins has a great post on The Difference Between Dreaming and Starting.
It was just what I needed to read today. It prodded me to share this on my blog, and that’s a START.
Next I’m going to START on that office. It might not be perfect, but it’s sure to be an improvement.
