Why Perfection Is OVERRATED!

In the past, I would consider myself a perfectionist. I would spend extra time working on activities like my writings just so I could “make them perfect”. 🙌

The problem is, with this mindset, I would rarely get things done. Because nothing was ever “good enough” for me, I would beat myself up and become a masochist to the God of Perfection. 👤

Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to have high standards. But having high standards and striving for perfection are not the same thing. 🌟

In order to be happier, you DON’T want to strive for perfection. Instead, what you want to strive for is excellence. ❤️

What’s the difference?

Perfection doesn’t allow you to be satisfied. 👎

Excellence allows you to be satisfied AND continue improving. ❤️

Perfection says “It is never going to be enough”. 👎

Excellence says “What matters is I do my best”. ❤️

Perfection is unforgiving of mistakes. 👎

Excellence understands mistakes are a necessary part of the process. ❤️

So, don’t strive for perfection. Strive for excellence, and you’ll be a much happier person doing it! 😊
