Tips for Perfectionists
In her blog Simple Mom, Tsh Oxenreider posted Perfection: The Thief of “Good Enough.”
Her insights are spot on and a good read. She says:
I’ve been staring at this chest of drawers that serves as our family’s craft cabinet for about three weeks. It’s totally disheveled and it hasn’t been organized since we moved here four months ago.
I need to go through it and put things in order. But I haven’t started the project because the ideal craft cabinet in my head would take an entire afternoon.
I’ve put it off because if I can’t do it perfectly, I think it’s better not to touch it at all.
Is being a perfectionist a hindrance? Or do we make it work to our advantage?
