Quit being a perfectionist

  • Break the task into many little steps, then focus on one part at the time. If you still put it off after breaking it down, then break it down even further into mini pieces. 
  • Give yourself the permission to do a draft version. Meaning, there’s no need to get it done right the first time. Get started and things will roll on from there.

To avoid losing the enthusiasm you had at the beginning, bring back your end vision in sight.

Once you start, commit to it. Whatever you have planned, do them. Give yourself the option to exit a project if it’s really not in line with your vision, but otherwise, hold yourself to your word.

Give yourself the permission to drop what you’re doing if it’s not working out, and you might just find many new things coming your way straight after that.

Good planning of resources help you plan out your energy and expectations. 

The path of highest enjoyment means doing what makes you feel happiest at the moment. 

 Celebrate the process, the resting, the doing, the completion, everything. Take the opportunity to recharge and regroup. 

When you start on a project, make sure it is something you are passionate about and you want to see through.

Tracking your progress helps you understand how you’re doing and gives you a target to reach. This makes it easier to keep up with your momentum.

It doesn’t have to be exhaustive. Just a quick outline will help. The point is to have something that guides you.
