Happy New Year, friends!
On the first day back to school after winter break, it was a very cold day here in Florida. After dropping our two little guys off at school that morning, I noticed something a little unusual. A very large amount of people were out and about at 830 in the morning! If you are like many of the hundreds of other people around the world you may have started a list of resolutions, or things you wish to accomplish in the New Year – myself included! Those people I passed on the way home that day – running, riding bicycles, power-walking – all of them out in the brisk morning air must have had the same idea – to start a resolution, to start fresh! I smiled as I drove by and thought to myself “good for them!” Quickly after, I began to wonder how many of them would dwindle off in the next few weeks to come.

“The path to perfection, often, leads to procrastination.”

Isn’t that statement strangely, true? Some of us want to get back in shape, or get more organized (pointing the finger at myself there, folks). With the new year, we all strive for bigger things — we all strive for “perfection”.  Before long, we begin to beat ourselves up over our resolutions. Maybe you missed a day on your workout, or maybe you didn’t check everything off your to-do list for the day.
Stop right there.
Before you decide to step off the path and head toward procrastination; before you start making excuses, or you’re ready to give up; before you start to feel perfect isn’t within your grasp  —Remember this, my friends; PROGRESS over perfection.

You know all those things you’ve been wanting to do?
You should go do them, but give yourself grace along the way. Give yourself permission to fail and remember it doesn’t have to be perfect. Because in the end, DONE is better than perfect. And progress, is much better than perfection.

Each step we take toward progressing to our goals, no matter how big, how small or how messy it gets; is step in the right direction.

Here’s to progress in 2016, instead of perfection.
