Perfectionitis

Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.

– Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

I’ve been lamenting about my first blog wanting it to be perfect and in the process came down with perfectionitis. It’s a common malady for me as I want to create the perfect project, achieve impeccability, acquire succinct supremacy, end with excellence and conquer the world ! Some days it’s just enough to get out of bed with this high fallutin’ self inflicted perfectionitis !

By the way, adding ‘itis to any claimed malady helps me laugh at myself. We humans are silly people so I strive to enjoy my humanness in all its delicious splendor.

I don’t know what shape and form this blog will take and there’s no way of knowing until I just start writing and post and keep on writing and keep on posting. Will I conquer the world one blog post at a time ? Probably not. Will I be perfect in my every post ? Doubtful. Will I keep on trying ? Yes !

Let’s encourage each other to try something where we don’t know the outcome. What do you want to accomplish but stop yourself along the way with your own form of perfectionitis ?
