Until 3 years ago, I used to be a perfectionist. Research had to be thorough; execution perfect 💯.
As a result, I was in the research phase for a LONG time and hardly executed anything 👩🏻💻. This included my nutrition, work, and lifestyle.
It made my life fairly uneventful with moments of sheer terror and stress 😵🤯. For a while it was fine... until it was not.
The lack of consistency and organisation drove me nuts🌰🥜. I was constantly stressed, and I felt like it was me against the world, in a bad way.
After one final crash, I decided to do something about it. I got myself a planner📓, one that would help me schedule but also gave me the ability to reflect on my week and break my big goals down into many small, doable steps✍🏻.
Not going to lie, I still have moments of sheer terror and stress (I’m only human🤷🏻♀️), but they’re far fewer these days.
And I’m now able to execute my plans often and consistently. When I do face a wall, instead of panicking, I adjust accordingly.
