Give yourself permission, & cure perfection paralysis

Permission is powerful. It allows you to move forward without second-guessing yourself.

When you’re creating, you have to give yourself permission: permission to be scared, permission to pursue small goals, permission to suck.

When I wrote my first blog post 13 years ago, I gave myself permission. “I’m just going to barf this out and clean it up later.” I was scared, intimidated, and paralyzed. I gave myself permission to write a crappy blog post, and 6 years later, I had a book deal.

Try it. What’s holding you back from taking the first step? Give yourself permission to get started.
