Life plan

8 STASHED IDEAS

I’m simply urging you to exert a little caution. We’ve all been bombarded with the message that if we’re not making ourselves special in some way , then we don’t matter. But as David Foster Wallace wrote at length about, some of the most heroic people in the world are those who toil silently through the monotony and boredom , who live lives of simple satisfaction and anonymous successes. And there’s nothing wrong with that.

  1. Define: What's the worst thing that can happen, Prevent: What you can do to prevent it, Repair: What can you do to correct it as much as you can
  2. What's the upside/success of action
  3. What's the downside of inaction

  1. Perfectionist Monster will convince you that you will be able to find some sort of a shortcut. He will always have a cheat code promising to make you an overnight success. He will get you to the goal in no time. Or maybe you both will simply spend too much time at the bottom of stairs.
  2. Perfectionist Monster will protect your identity like crazy. It’s a big world out there, that’s scary. What if nobody likes your work? What if nobody likes you? That’s okay, everybody gets scared from time to time, acknowledge his feelings and give him a hug.
  3. Perfectionist Monster hates publish, post, tweet, share buttons. He gets anxious around them and he’ll tell you the craziest stories. ‘If you tweet this people will laugh at you so hard that they will die, literally die. Do you really want to destroy the human race?’ He’s a J.K. Rowling when it comes to fiction.
  4. You might think the Perfectionist Monster isn’t that bad, all cute and cuddly, rolling over your keyboard. But wait for a deadline to approach and he’ll be a horned beast standing behind you, blowing his hot breath on your fingertips.
  5. Perfectionist Monster will tell you to sit down with him and examine your work. No doubt you’ll end up deciding that nothing you create is good enough. Often you’re too emotionally involved in the creative process to be a good judge of the outcome.
  6. Learn to dance with your Perfectionist Monster, the chances are he’s not going anywhere. Once in a while do something nice for him (beer & burgers?) and maybe he’ll become a more reasonable companion.
