I found a quote today that really resonated with me. It’s from Brené Brown’s book “Daring Greatly”. I’ll just let the quote speak for itself:
“I remind myself, “Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.” (Cribbed from Voltaire.) A twenty-minute walk that I do is better than the four-mile run that I don’t do. The imperfect book that gets published is better than the perfect book that never leaves my computer. The dinner party of take-out Chinese food is better than the elegant dinner that I never host.”
Maybe you needed to hear that today, too.
And if you’d like to explore this idea further, here are a few articles that think along the same lines.
- I never thought I was a perfectionist
- The Kind of Productivity I crave
- Kind Productivity
- When Setting Goals Stresses You Out
Be kind to yourself! I’ll do the same.
