I have been wanting to write in my newsletter and it has been near the top of my to-do list for longer than I care to admit. I’ve been wanting to talk to you about my relaunch as ‘Self Confidence for Women’ which you will have noticed.
Putting things off
So why the procrastination?
I’m learning not to beat myself up at times like these. There’s usually a reason for procrastination, often a good one. I’ve spent a bit of time sitting with this and being curious. (Something I’d recommend for something you are putting off).
I came face to face with my desire to get it right. If not perfect then at least very good. ‘Professional’. I wanted my rewritten website to be completely finished. (And at least the text to properly align around the flower image…)
My last newsletter concerned a similar issue. My drive to produce quality is not always a force for good!
I’m imperfect and and my work is imperfect. Clearly true and strangely liberating to admit.
I’d rather connect with what is now a reasonable number of newsletter subscribers, than sit around waiting for perfection.
My website isn’t completely finished. (I’d welcome feedback on the wording of the first page, for example. Does it apply to you? Drop me a line.)
Is there anything in your life that you are delaying out of a desire to get it right or even perfect? What really matters about this issue?
What would it take for you to take a step today?
