I got out of my routine a bit today so I am writing this much later than usual. I had some work that I had to get out by a deadline and then I knew I would be free to take my time to think, rather than rushing just to get it done.
It is a gorgeous winter day here. The sun is shining after several rainy, cloudy days. That is appropriate because now that my project is done, I feel like the cloud of responsibility has lifted from me as well.
Completing a project, particularly a long, big or complex one, one you have dreaded and weren’t sure you knew how to do, is such a wonderful feeling. The fact is, completing any project is a great feeling and conversely, letting it linger is like allowing a dark cloud to follow you around fogging your thinking, memory and mojo. Done is better than perfect, my friend. Some is better than none. Nike absolutely nailed it – “Just do it!”
