    I like the progress, not perfection is a goal. Worrying about being perfect can lead to procrastination!

    Hi Sandi,

I used to be a terrible procrastinator in high school....for example we had an assignment to read Les Miserable and write a essay...well I didn't even start the book until 11PM, read all night at 3 AM wrote my essay and went to school at 7 AM that morning...that is how bad I was with procrastination.......In my twenties I realized all procrastination did was to cause me undue stress...between 20-30 I nipped procrastination in the bud.....

Now at 41 I am a git-r-done type of girl....if something has to be done, I do it as quickly as possible so that I don't have to stress over it and I can move on to the next thing.....

Just thought I would now I have very little tolerance for procrastination when it comes to myself.....I also realize at 41 that perfection is something to strive for but can never really be obtained....

Great post...

    I really like the author/researcher Brene Brown. She mostly researches shame but a lot of things sprout from shame. One of her claims is Perfectionism is a disease. I agree. Prefectionism is an unattainable goal. So heck, I'd procrastinate my way to failure too. Progress not perfection for the win!
