In Old World Germany, the last decoration placed on the Christmas tree was always a pickle…carefully hidden deep in the boughs. Legend has it that the observant child who found it on Christmas Day was blessed with a year of good fortune…and a special gift.
Where are your dreams, goals and visions hidden?
Perfectionism, the “I have to get it right the first time” syndrome.
I know, I wanted to make my first blog posting brilliant the first time out. While it was a nice idea, it just didn’t work out that way. I didn’t pose the question, I didn’t let you the readers know Sandy is a real client that wanted to share and get feed back to her frustration to writing and selling her vision.
NO!! The way perfectionism works, is it ties you up in knots, sending you fleeing from your desk, spinning in circles, making you so crazy you can’t think straight, let alone write.
Hmmm – and then it suddenly dawns on me that is exactly why I created “the Uptown Ladies Club” to mastermind. I don’t need to be a perfectionist. I need to be transparent, to share my thoughts, and get the insight of others, and at the same time, remember to not let my passion cloud my judgment thinking I have to have all the answers.
Perfectionism leads to paralysis
This leads to procrastination
