Being the Type-A Virgo that I am, I have always fallen prey to the problem of “perfectionism”. I know it’s a bad word. However, let’s explore how we can turn that around…
On the half-way mark video, Troy said something that struck me pretty profoundly. He made the point that no one who embarks on this plan does it perfectly. Things come up, crazy stuff happens (like power outages!), and no day happens exactly like it’s planned. What I have admired the most, however, is that no matter how crazy the days get, Troy and Marc have remained perfect in their WORD and have stuck to the plan without looking back.
That’s a form of perfectionism that I can get behind.
If you say you will do the thing, do the thing. Stay perfect in your word to yourself about the thing that you gave your word to. It’s not about doing the thing perfect-LY… it’s about staying in the thing and doing the thing so that the thing gets done as well as the thing CAN be done… in the thing… thing.
