Escaping The Snare Of Perfectionism

Over the last few days, I fell back into the trap that have cripple so many of my previous attempts at blogging.

Whether you call it paralysis of analysis, perfectionism, or even procrastination, at the end of the day, I did not get my thoughts down on paper.

So, I’ve decided to just put all that behind me and move forward. Kinda why I am writing this right now.

I am not a “author”, so why on earth did I expect to write a novel?

This is a blog for Pete’s sake! I’m sure someone called Pete must be sneezing somewhere around the world.

Anyway, as with most things, the best way to get started is to actually start. Take it one step at a time, one task at a time, keep doing it… With practice, you’ll get better.

If an any point you get stuck, don’t be afraid to seek help, this might be in the form of a mentor, a course, a tutorial; could even be a passerby. Take ONLY what you need from the information given, then move on.

Make mistakes, they are not as bad, as some have made them out to be; unless you ignore the lessons that accompany them. Use those lessons to improve your skills. Then move on.

Well, look who started to blog! Now ain’t that something?!

As the saying goes, “I’d better quit, while I’m ahead“. Gotta leave something for the next entry after all.

That’s it for now. I’m out!
