Progress, Not Perfection
Today, time is precious for me. I have four, 20-minute work blocks spaced out by five minute breaks in between.
Years ago, I would have panicked, feeling like today was a loss.
But not any more. Today is chance to ‘move the chains’.
This is a football analogy in case you aren’t familiar with the term.
Life isn’t about the hail mary highlight, it’s about moving the chains one foot at a time.
Today, I am going to move the chains through 80 minutes of focused work.
And that all ties in to the idea of progress, not perfection.
Perfection is F.E.A.R disguised as a noble thing. Perfection doesn’t exist.
Perfection the fear that tells you that others may judge you since what you are ‘putting out there’ isn’t good enough, yet.
I got news for ya, it’s never going to be perfect. But good is good enough.
In life, you have ideas, some are good, some are bad. But when a worthy idea ‘sticks’, we must move forward with the idea of progress in our head and hearts.
Take the first step. Move the chains a couple of yards today.
At the end of a week, a month, a few months, a year or even a few years, you will have been up and down that field of life so many times, all through the scope of daily progress.
Whether you are working on your body, your mind or your spirit, apply the concept of progress, not perfection.
You got this.
