Get over myself
I always feel like everything has to be perfect before I can make the first move. I also feel like I always know what’s best for me. Instead of doing that, I need to be able to listen to other people, use systems that work, take advice.
This is the thing I’m struggling with right now.
Satisficing is finding a good-enough solution and sticking with it. Unfortunately for me, I have a hard time with that. From diet to exercise, coding to knitting, I always think the “right” way is just around the corner. I know this is false, but yet it nags at me. I also know, beyond any doubt, that any action is better than inaction (in these types of pursuits), and yet….
So today, I did something. I ate mostly veggies, and finished the night off with pizza. Far from perfect, but miles away from giving up.
The other advantage to just doing something is inertia. Once the ball is rolling it’s much easier to keep it going. After a while, it’s harder to slow it down then continue. So let’s get a streak going!
