Getting things done in my Year of Less

As part of my Year of Less, I’m focusing on something my coworkers and I tell the students we work with all the time: Finished is greater than perfect.

Deadlines exist for a reason and perfection isn’t the goal. Done is the goal. While I’m great at meeting deadlines for others and at work, it’s something I’m not so great about when it comes to my shop or my personal goals.

There’s a reason this blog skipped 2017. I had all these big plans and then never had time to make it perfect so… here we are in 2018.

Maybe it’s the age of social media and the fact that people curate their lives to magazine quality, but it can seem like everyone else has it all figured out. Have you ever met an adult who said they have it all figured out and adulting is easy? Didn’t think so.

Finished>perfect. So I’m giving myself permission to ramble at you even though the editor in me is cringing. Less perfectionism = more accomplishments. I don’t have some magic trick or trade secret. I just want to get things done.
