Man oh man. Let me tell you, deciding on things can be a real pain in the neck sometimes. Take for example my recent attempt at migrating and then rather updating forenji.com, and my attempt to get ConsultForenji.com, just the way I want it.
There is always a “better” way or a “better” option, or at least we think there is. Sometimes this pursuit for betterness causes us to give up entirely. Like that guy you know who can’t commit to his girl cause he hasn’t found the perfect one yet. Well, he never will.
So why is deciding so hard? Well, there may be lots of reasons: commitment, fear, doubt, to name a few. But the real culprit is perfection. We want perfection now, or nothing at all. We fail to realise that perfection is a process.
“To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often” – Winston Churchill
Here’s my advice: Don’t make perfection your goal, make perfecting your habit, and so free yourself from that nagging need to get things “just right”.
