The problem comes when I go to put things in motion.
I don't like to make a move until everything is in place. I wait until all my ducks are in a row and they're all quacking the same tune before I take a step.
That's the problem with being a list maker. All my strategerizing and data processing leaves me waiting for perfection on Step #1 before I can give myself permission to move on to Step #2.
And you can die waiting for perfection.
Here's an example: We are now 13 sentences into this blog post. In that time, I've gone up and edited the printable graphic 4 times. I resized the lettering, then I adjusted the kerning by a microfraction, then I darkened the drop shadow, then I adjusted the size it displays at. And I could do this all day if allowed. I'd be happy to sit here and fiddle with all the tiny details and never type another sentence.
Enough is enough. Sometimes you just have to hit the publish button.
Waiting for perfection kills creativity.
Think of all the half finished projects you have lying around your craft room. Now add to that all the projects that you've never even started.
