Writing about perfectionism every day for the past 15 days certainly made me much more conscious about it. Now I can realize that I'm spending a lot of time thinking or making something overly complicated much earlier. Every day I spot at least one moment when I realize that something I'm doing is too ambitious yet not very valuable at this moment. I learned to say no to much more things that I want to do and stay focused. I'm much more productive now and I feel like I have a lot more freedom than before.

Letting perfectionism go is liberating.

I still don't set specific goals because at the beginning of the project I'm not sure what I want it to be in the end. But I have some kind of understanding in my head. Unfortunately, not on paper yet. I will keep looking for more ways to improve my workflow as well as incorporate more practices that I already wrote about into the process.

I'm still not very good at prioritization, because I kind of want to do everything at one time. However, setting goals will help to solve this problem and I'm working on it. Perfectionist mindset that was with me for my entire life is very difficult to change, but I feel that it's already slowly changing. Only consistency and dedication will help me to switch the “perfection” lever off in my head.
