7 Ways to Overcome Perfectionism.

1. Have A Clear Purpose

A strong purpose is like a compass. It keeps you on track.

Have clear objectives:

- Be precise
- Know your end goal
- Focus on your priorities

"A strong purpose is the best alarm clock." ~ @sovereigneur 😎
2. Plan Ahead Of Time

A lack of planning leads to a lack of sanity.

Planning makes your goals realistic and attainable.

Plans should include:

- Milestones
- Desired outcome
- Breakdown of larger tasks

Your ideas are destined to fail without planning.
3. Start Small

Never attempt to complete a complex task all at once.

Break it down and start small:

- Apply the 80/20 rule
- Start with a vital task
- Take one decision at a time

Breaking projects into smaller tasks makes them realistic.
4. Avoid Analysis Paralysis

More choices lead to fewer actions.

Don't be the person who uses analysis to avoid work.

Consider the following:

- Put a deadline
- Think on paper
- Set decision importance

Don’t drain your mental energy by weighing alternatives.
5. Stick To Your Decisions

Once decided, don’t look back.

Stay on track with:

- A tracker app
- Write your decisions
- An accountability buddy

“Be decisive. Right or wrong, make a decision. The road of life is paved with flat squirrels who couldn’t make a decision” - Unknown
6. Be Mindful

Perfectionism is a friend of Distractions.

Clear your mind with:

- Meditation
- Brain dump
- Long walks

Be mindful of your thoughts, and be objective to avoid Perfectionism.
7. Have A Support System

Find a partner, buddy, or coach who will help you sort through.

Don’t hesitate to:

- Get help
- Seek advice
- Share feelings

A sound support system will:

- Identify possibilities
- Celebrate success
- Give feedback

Perfect is the enemy of the good.

It’s paralyzing, and inaction causes anxiety.

Get out of the grips of Perfectionism. Live a productive life.

As Confucius said,

“Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.”.

17 Powerful Ideas That Changed My Life

1. Set Goals, But Measure Progress

Your goal is a rudder that steers your life.

Without it, the wind takes you wherever.

But, success relies more on the process and less on obsession with goals.

“It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.”

― Confucius
2. Create Something

Instead of consuming, create something.

The world is full of consumers.

It needs more producers.

"Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing."

― Benjamin Franklin

21 Pieces Of Advice I Would Give To My 18-Year-Old Self

1. Don't Worry About What Others Think

18-year-olds judge mercilessly.

There’s no way around that.

They judge mostly because they’re scared to face their own lives.

If someone judges you, instead of freaking out… pity them…

They’re going through a lot.
2. Every Challenge Is A Lesson

You can learn from anything,

although it may not seem like it at the time.

When things calm down, reflect on the challenge.

You’ll see the lessons in that challenge.

And you’ll be better prepared for the next challenge.
