I admit, I’m guilty of being a perfectionist. I like everything to be lovely and beautiful and of quality if possible. This used to stop me from sharing my creativity with the world because my vision rarely matched my execution in the end. I’ve had to learn to let go of perfection, because it doesn’t exist. No matter how many times you refine something in your own power, in the end it will never be totally perfect. It may be really close, it may be wonderful, it could be excellent. When I realized the difference between excellence and perfection that was the turning post for me. Instead of obsessing over the things I couldn’t control, I learned to be excellent in what I could control. This new freedom, along with not caring what other people think about me or my creativity, has allowed me to openly share what’s in my heart and on my mind.
Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence. – Vince Lombardi
We get sucked into perfection for one very simple reason: We believe perfection will protect us. Perfectionism is the belief that if we live perfect, look perfect, and act perfect, we can minimize or avoid the pain of blame, judgment, and shame. – Brené Brown
