I had good intentions. My goal? 30 days of writing a blog with at least 500 words. I was focused and ready to go. Until… Until…well needless to say I failed.

I didn’t hit the mark.  But here’s the good news. I’m writing now.

Here’s the good news. I’m still going.

Here’s the good news. I didn’t reach perfection and that’s okay.   

I’m certainly not perfect, but when it comes to accomplishing your goals you don’t need to be perfect. What will we need?

  1. The mindset to keep going going even if we’re not perfect. So often, people want to do everything perfect. If they mess up in the slightest bit, they completely stop. Don’t do that.
  2. Make provisions to eliminate potential pit falls. Typically, I like to write first thing in the morning. I like to get moving with my thoughts. That didn’t work out as well last week. But it doesn’t mean I can’t improve.
  3. Appreciation for what you have done. I’m thankful I have the ability and opportunity to write. I’m thankful that I took up blogging. I’m thankful that some of my words are able to encourage others. Appreciate what you’ve done and just keep going.

So, there is no perfection here. But that’s okay. As long as I keep progressing, as long as you keep progressing, it will be all good.

Do you need to blog?

Do you need to workout?

Do you need to read? Go get to it. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been sporadic for a while. Doing something is better than doing nothing. Do you agree?

I would love to hear your thoughts. In what area of your life do you find yourself struggling with being a perfectionist? How do you respond when you fall short of what you’re trying to accomplish?
