This is a struggle that most perfectionists can relate with.
Often there is a misconception that perfectionists are the people who are super organised and perfect with their plans and decisions. However, most of the perfectionists tend to have that sort of expectation with themselves so they end up not showing up to avoid disappointment. As a result they feel guilty and ashamed for not being organised.
Staying stagnant in indecision is waste of time and your potential. While in contrary , being decisive, uplifts you towards your goals and intentions.
For perfectionists, making decisions could be somethings like a challenge. It’s not like they don’t know the right decision but they would rather stay without taking action due the fear of disappointment. Also, most perfectionists do not make decision due to having fear being judged over their decision, fear of having disapproval from their loved ones (specially from someone they look up to), etc. Sometimes with other varied reasons the indecision among the perfectionists remains. It leads into procrastination and remains in a vicious loop of indecision. Learn more about perfectionism here.
There are a lot of people working from homefor the first time due to corona virus outbreak.
It can be challenging to always stay productive.
Specially when working from your comfortable and cosy home, you face various unavoidable distractions/situations .
If you have been working from home, probably you know what I mean.
It is especially not easy when you are working on your project without someone being accountable on you. However, the situation applies to anyone who have to produce their best in a certain given time.
Creating a gratitude practice is a form of habit that can change your life in a positive way.
Seriously, in the world where we’ve equipped with all of those advice and information with how to upgrade our goals, maximise our productivity, plan better, start dreaming and always look for better, gratitude is something that helps us keep grounded.
Often gratitude is confused with being still and what you have , which in fact is not true. Practicing gratitude is not about blocking the better incoming but about appreciating what we have. Therefore, being grateful and staying stagnant is not same.

My intention to write this post is not to state that this is the best way to start your morning. The point of this whole thing is to figure out what works for you. Let’s say if you are not a morning person then this post might give you some ideas and it is an effort of you if you could include a few activities and be proud about them. It is about you other than comparing your routine to others. Don’t do anything because someone else (including me) is doing. It should align with who you are other than trying to do everything all at once. Just focus on your strength.
I discovered I was wrong about myself when I said ‘ I am not a perfectionist.’ Well everybody I knew said they weren’t too. But did we not knew the definition of ‘Perfectionism’?
What are the traits of a Perfectionist?
