Last night I was talking to KK about the perils of writing and how hard it is for me to post on the blog because I want each and every post to be PERFECT. And also because I’m afraid of sounding idiotic, cheesy, preachy, whiny, boring, etc. I want people to scratch their heads, cry, or laugh their asses off when they read my stuff. So I spend my time thinking about all of the interesting and clever things I would like to say, most of which never make it to the page.
He suggested I read Jon Acuff’s recent blog post about perfectionism.
This line from his post killed me:
” I learned this tip while writing the StuffChristiansLike.net. It’s essentially the critical difference between “perfect” and “published.” Here it is:
90% perfect and published always changes more lives than 100% perfect and stuck in your head.”
Now I just need to decide if I want to change lives.
