Perfect is the oposite of done

Perfectionism. It is the habit not only of finding flaws in everything that is done, but also not wanting to do anything that is not perfect. And as that is impossible if you’re a perfectionists, you can easily fall into simply not doing anything. Period.

Perfect comes from the latim for “thoroughly done.” But sometimes the obsession with “doing thoroughly” hinders it being done at all.

Esterical resolution for the week: emphasise the “practice” part in “Practice makes perfect”. Focus less on finding the perfectest roundest most aerodynamic ball. Focus more on just getting it off my court. And get the game going.

Starting with this blog.
