Series: NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS THAT HONOR YOUR SPIRIT - 1

    LET GO OF PERFECTIONISM!
     
    Perfectionism is our most compulsive way of keeping ourselves small, a kind of psycho-emotional contortionism that gives us the illusion of reaching for greatness while constricting us into increasingly suffocating smallness. In other words, perfectionism is how we keep ourselves small: by people-pleasing. There are a whole lot of ways to be perfect, and not one of them is attained through punishment. Perfection is like chasing the horizon. Keep moving. Otherwise, and if your fidelity to perfectionism is too high, you never do anything. Perfectionism is the voice of the Oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life, and it is the main obstacle between you and a piss-poor first attempt at anything. Perfectionism is a mean, frozen form of idealism, while messes are the artist's true friend. What people somehow (inadvertently?) forgot to mention when we were children was that we need to make messes in order to find out who we are and why we are here -- and, by extension, what we're supposed to be doing.
