I’m still not perfect.

Even though my default mode has shifted from “I’ll do it later” to “I’ll do it now,” I still sometimes procrastinate. When that happens, I tend to have a conversation with myself that sounds something like:

Motivated self: I can’t believe I haven’t done [whatever it is]. I’m ridiculous.

Procrastinating self: Don’t worry, you’ll get to it.

Motivated self: Maybe, but I feel lazy and like it’s weighing on me. I want to get it done.

Here’s something else that helps:
When I’m still having trouble finishing something, I think of this thing that a wise friend once told me. This wise friend had broken her procrastination habit and was, like me, a perfectionist. She told me this: “Sometimes I have to stop obsessing about getting an A and just get a B+.”

I was like, “Ooh. That’s good.”

So that's my advice to you, especially if you’re a perfectionist:

Stop obsessing about it and get a B+.

Is your perfectionism leading to procrastination? If so, stop obsessing and just do it. #nike

Here’s proof that this is an ongoing process for me:
Want to know the last time I procrastinated? Yup, this article.

Then this morning in the shower I had a little conversation with myself and heard my friend’s words, “Get a B+.”

So that's what I did. I got out of the shower and got it done.

It may not be perfect.

But it's done.
