Organize 365® Podcast

There is no such thing as perfection.

There just isn’t. Don’t let social media fool you. What about those pictures you see as you're scrolling your phone? Those aren’t real. Perfection isn’t real. But how do we get our brain and subconscious mind to understand this? 

When you see me, you are getting the 100% real me. I don’t use filters. As a matter of fact, I don’t even know how to use filters. It’s important for me to show you the real me. What you see is what you get.

I am not a perfectionist. I am a woman of excellence. This episode is going to help you understand how you are also a person of excellence and what that means.

Aristotle said, “We are what we repeatedly do..therefore excellence is not an act, but a habit.”

The habits taught through the Organize 365® systems and courses lead us to be people of excellence. These same habits help us free our brains and time to do what we are uniquely created to do.

Habits are so purposeful. Negative habits tend to happen naturally. But positive habits rarely happen naturally. I want you to think about your habits - are they helping you be a person of excellence? Are they allowing you the time you need to do what you are uniquely created to do?

I want you to choose a life of excellence over perfectionism. Don’t expect perfectionism from yourself or others. A person of excellence is able to focus on substance, richer conversations, better solutions and live a more productive life.

A word of the wise, choosing not to be a perfectionist is not an excuse to be lazy. You still need to strive for excellence. This will look different depending on your phase of life and priorities. 

I want to leave you with three things in this episode:

  1. Perfectionism is not a thing.

  2. Excellence is a great middle ground for you to strive for.

  3. You will never be done working on yourself, learning, growing and creating the person you want to be. It’s a journey.

As you think about your journey, I want you to also think about your home and the three seasons per year within your home. You need different things in those seasons. A person of excellence is continually improving and evolving the way they organize and use their home and time.
