“Anything worth doing is worth doing badly.”*

I’m “prone” to procrastination.  I’m not talking about things that are tedious, difficult, unappealing or boring.  I’m talking about things that interest me.  

These 3 things often feed my hesitancy to start or finish a project:

  • Wanting to do something “perfectly” (or at least competently)
  • Waiting for the “perfect time” before starting.
  • Thinking that everyone else does it perfectly so I should do on first try.

From now on “Do it Badly” is my motto to give me the courage to try new things, stop me from focusing on the outcome and have more fun.

“Do it Badly” today and . . .  improve as I go.
