Boost of the Day #74: Progress


Never aim for perfection, no matter what the task in hand is. You’re just setting yourself up for anxiety, stress and a sense of failure. It’s really easy to say this – much harder to execute in reality if you have perfectionist tendencies!

Try looking at your situation as if you were looking at your friend with the same perfectionist thoughts – would you expect a friend to serve the perfect meal, have the perfect home/job or do a perfect presentation at work? I doubt you’d put the same pressure on that friend…

Aim to make progress, not be perfect. You’ll never reach happiness or self worth otherwise.
