How do you fight perfectionism?
By publishing and sharing a blog before you feel it's ready, before you're a compelling blog writer.
Don't try to hit home runs in your rookie season.
I'm asking you to ground out.
Get used to the pitches. Study the failures and missteps. Let them guide you.
Do it publicly. Do it in front of the crowd. It's OK to hit the batting cages, but you'll learn much more through sharing.
Before you know it you'll be hitting home runs without thinking about it. You'll be so engaged in making the small adjustments, in the practice and art of the swing, you may not even clock the home runs.
After awhile you'll hit a grand slam
...and you won't be surprised.
