Done Is Better Than Perfect

What’s Up, Where Ya Been?

Shoot guys, I have been suffering from the craziest case of writer’s block.  Exhibit A, I have deleted and re-written that basic opening sentence a handful of times.  It’s that much more difficult to go through the ebb and flow of creative inspiration when you need to be writing every day!  As these pauses usually go, I have thankfully been planning for the next few months and shooting a ton of content.  Though I can’t seem to produce a final product, I’ve been full of ideas and everything has turned into a rapidly growing list of partially completed draft posts.  Which, hopefully will equal a consistent delivery of content like I’ve always wanted to do.

I’ve done a lot of research about perfection/analysis paralysis lately and it’s honestly something I’ve suffered from it for as long as I can remember.  Fuelled by overthinking and anxiety, I start convincing myself that if it’s not unattainably “perfect” then I can’t even start or publish what I have actually done. Can sure be crippling when you’re a one woman show!  What do you do to spark creativity and/or work past a perfectionist standard?

I keep repeating the mantra, “Done is better than perfect!”
