Perfection vs. procrastination

It’s easy enough to mistake procrastination for perfection. “As soon as I get this last little tweak, I’ll go ahead and launch my new initiative or buy that new product.”

Most of us are wonderful procrastinators. It’s built into our DNA. The less we do the more energy we preserve. Caveman thinking.

We know our setups could use a refresh. Our musical collections begs for new. It’s often more comforting to plunk down in the easy chair and just enjoy what we always have.

For me, at least, it takes great effort to pull myself out of the perfectionist mindset and out into the wilds of the new. It’s much easier to slip into procrastination.

I comfort myself with the thought there’s always tomorrow. Yet, at my age, I begin to question that.

Maybe today’s the day to step out of my comfort zone and go for it.

Maybe not.

I guess I am procrastinating.
