All or Nothing Approach
Sunday, October 03, 2010
I am being challenged by an unhealthy attitude that goes along the lines of if I can NOT do it 100% then I should not do it! I am shaking my head trying to think of where that way of thinking came from. I really don't think it was from my mother or my father. I guess it is just my own and I have to own up to it, confront it, and put something else in its spot.
Sal that all or nothing approach is going to sabotage you. It is not realistic and it is not helpful one iota! Just because you are not doing something 100% does not mean you are failing to complete the project! One day at a time, one hour at a time, heck one second at a time that is the way. Reduce life down into manageable bits of time! You can do it!
What to put in its place??? How about a more forgiving attitude that says its OKAY. The only failing is when you give up. Therefore the logical solution is to JUST DON'T GIVE UP!
