Being perfect is an impossible goal.
Instead of pursuing perfection, make the commitment today to simply do your best. Then relax, confident in the knowledge that your best is always good enough. Perfectionism is a lost cause. Focus your energy on being the best you can be.
Being the best you can be takes courage. You need to own your decisions and have the courage to see them through. It’s easy to allow yourself to drift from one thing to another without ever really taking charge of your life. But not making a decision is actually a decision in itself.
If you find yourself considering your options today, be decisive. If you practise this on the little decisions, making bigger decisions will soon come more naturally to you.
Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.
