"Perfectionism. Can you be too perfect? Oh yeah. Ironically, many cluttered people are perfectionists. Certainly perfectionism was one of the anchors that used to hold me back.
Wanting everything to be perfect can keep you from making progress in a number of ways:
- You don’t have the perfect organization system, so you have no system.
- You can’t get rid of something because you need to determine the perfect person / perfect place for that item to go next.
- You know the perfect person – the exact perfect person – and the fact that you only see them once every two years is not going to budge you from hanging onto the item until that day comes around again.
- You’re afraid that you don’t have the perfect amount of time necessary to tackle a decluttering job as perfectly as it deserves, so you don’t start…ever.
- You fear that your efforts will get messed up – they won’t remain perfect, so why get started at all?
Good enough is good enough! Are your ideas about perfection – both its desirability and your ability to achieve it – holding you back from making progress? One day at a time, one thing at a time will get you where you want to go. No perfection necessary. --------------------
Where to begin? Start with the Easy Stuff : from 365 Less Things
I'm so glad Cindy covered the topic of perfectionism, because I couldn't agree more - and speak from experience- that folks with too much stuff usually are perfectionists and perfectionism is a huge stumbling block. If waited for this blog to be perfect-- and I did for a long time-- I'd not be posting at all. Once I got that through my head, and reminded myself that everything (including myself) is a work in progress, I jumped in. Ready or not.
DONE IS BETTER THAN PERFECT.
Watch a couple shows on hoarders and you wont have a problem throwing everything away...
Hoarders definitely helps me stay on track but it's easy to tell other folks to throw their rotten pumpkins away if you don't personally hoard rotten pumpkins.
Generally, it's much harder to declutter when it's your own stuff. But I can attest that after months of work and practice, it does get easier and has developed more into a satisfying routine in itself rather than an anxiety-producing one. . .
I personally wouldn't get tooo worried about what the whorizontal world thot about me, dear; I'd be much more concerned about what Jesus shall say at our General Judgment. You maaay not like me, yet, I’m not out to please you. Lemme wanna gonna tella youse Who (grrr - New Joisey accent):
