Perfectionism requires imperfect accommodations

Maggie Appleton

This practice has been so liberating for me, as a chronic perfectionist who needs constant pushing to publish consistently. I know I do good work, but it’s always been clouded by fear of failure even though I know it’s counterproductive. Like a battle of wills for myself. Argh.

Which is why I’ve decided to fight back.

I’ve silently published 4 (!) new posts over the past hour. These are book notes that I’ve been writing for the past month.

The reason why I think this works so well for books is because for non-fiction books, I skip around a lot and consume information just in time, not just in case. This means my information diet is very lean, because the focus is all focused towards consistent focus so I could chip away at my goals.

I Wrote 30 Essays in 30 Days. Here’s what I’ve learned:
Setting my sacred writing hour to coincide with my peak productivity time did not work, because there were things I had to take care of that were frankly more important than my essay. And that’s okay. Prioritize.Having a list of full of writing prompts did not work for me, because none of them inspire me… Read More »Publishing without being ready is liberating.
