Weekly Quick Tip

From Aby at Simplify 101...

Focus on progress instead of perfection.
Believe it or not, perfectionism is a very common cause of disorganization. Seems counterintuitive that a perfectionist could be disorganized, doesn’t it? Well, the desire for perfection is often so strong that it creates immobility, both at the onset of your organizing projects, and anywhere in the process if you begin to realize things aren’t turning out perfectly.

If you feel that perfectionism is getting in the way of your desire for a more organized home and life, the first step is to recognize this fact. Then, look for ways to take small steps in the direction you want to go. Give yourself permission to organize imperfectly by focusing your attention on progress instead of perfection.

OMG... like this is so true! This has got to be my problem, because whenever things start to Not Go How I Planned, I freeze. I ignore my email, my LJ, my blog, my art, my schoolwork, everything... Nothing really gets done... And everything suffers...

I need to work on this...

What do you need to work on?
