All or Nothing

Tuesday, July 02, 2019

What an interesting topic to blog about. Spark Coach's focus today is on just that; an all or nothing attitude to getting healthy. Coincidentally, I have been working with a fellow classmate (I am studying to be a life/executive coach) on how the quest to perfection can be paralyzing.

While I've been embracing the fact that "nothing I do has to be perfect" in my work, I haven't been applying it to getting healthy. I wonder why I haven't made that connection until today?

I have spent the majority of my life trying to be perfect and that has truly held me back from many things. Where this mindset came from it anyone's guess; but I have a pretty good notion. What has happened in the past is just there; in the past. I cannot change history but I can affect the future.

Perfection is too damn exhausting to keep up and too hard to attain. I hate the hold it has had over me, and I am tired of procrastinating the tasks that need to get done.

Healthy eating and exercise need to happen in their glorious, imperfect forms. It's time for another paradigm shift!

    Most of what I have learned in business I have applied to my everyday life.

    In business my saying has always been "Progress Over Perfection". Perfection does not exist. Even when you think you have hit it, others will want more.
