I remember when I first heard about blogging. The thought of typing out my leadership insights and ideas thrilled me. Then those same thoughts terrified me.
Soon, they turned from excitement to dread. Why?
Because I was caught up with the idea my work needed to be perfect. I had to strive for perfection.
I Was Foolish
But I was also normal. Everyone who has the desire to create art wants to do so with perfection.
They want their work to be above criticism. They want people to love what they do.
I was striving for perfection.
The truth is this often isn’t possible. Especially as you first start out.
I couldn’t be perfect in my writing. I didn’t know how to write well. And I felt foolish
So I hid.
