Perfectionism

Post by Christine »

I am an admittedly insatiable collector of quotes, so here is one for thought.

"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 shitty first draft. I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won't have to die. The truth is that you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren't even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a lot more fun while they're doing it.”

Anne Lamott
from her book, Bird by Bird

The journey, the challenge is to step into the
projection room and stop being lost in the script.
