Being a Perfectionist SUCKS….
Today has been a very weird day indeed. I felt up feeling pretty meh and generally didn’t want to do anything with my day. But then I remembered I wanted to change my blog around a bit and create a new more fitting header. I left myself with not much time really to start it but I did anyway.
After two hours of trial and error trying to come up with a design I liked I still didn’t like the look of anything on the blog. I was getting more and more frustrated the more I tweaked and fiddled with the header. In the end I uploaded what I have now without being 100% happy with it.
I had to shut the computer down and just walk away as I was annoyed with myself that I hadn’t been able to come up with a good enough design.
I’m certainly not a perfectionist when it comes to everything in my life but when it comes to graphic design I definitely am! Today I have put myself under unnecessary stress by not giving myself enough time to really design something I love and by uploading any old thing I didn’t spend much time on.
The lesson of the story: Get up earlier and do something! Stop moping around and spend time doing the things you want to do (Easier said than done sometimes) And don’t be too hard on yourself. Nobody is perfect all the time.
