Perfectionism can be destructive, but so can a lack of perfectionism. It’s all about finding that balance.
For me, I’ve swung wildly from one to another over the years. I do have a predisposition for perfectionism and OCD and this can hold me back a lot with respect to content creation and experience. It’s something I need to constantly work on and is more related to my biology than psychology as for me, it’s connected with a particular natural deficiency in certain trace minerals.
What this can look like is my creating a Menstrual Cycle Chart probably 1.5? Years ago and then never making it public because the lines in the chart weren’t perfectly aligned and then I went on a distractive journey that took me into other stuff for quite a while.
It makes me so frustrated sometimes! But anyway, this week I went and updated and beautified and perfected it even by my standards and it is ready to be in all your hands as soon as a finalised the accompanying Inner Seasons guide. Both complimentary as a gift for my email subscribers here.
I’m fairly confident this will actually all be completed within the next 7 days because I’m in 100% psyched about getting it done.
The thing is, if I truthfully consider how things would have played out if I had just decided ‘Whatever!’ and pushed out the rough copy way back when - that wouldn’t have been ideal either because I had a ways to journey as a coach and healer before I could add all my energy to it.
Perfectionism can hold you back from everything but it can also be a sign that more than just the obvious is out of alignment.
And a care free attitude can allow you to be more open but is may also mean that you don’t dig deeper when that would truly enrich things. It can also be a red flag that your passion is out of step.
So - balance :) and self awareness - watch out for your perfectionism and ask what it is masking and watching out for a lack of perfectionism and what you may be in avoidance of seeing for the big picture.
