You’re Not a Perfectionist Content Creator: You’re Just Afraid to Fail
99.99% of the time, when a content creator tells me they’re a perfectionist, I know they’re lying.
Not only is it a convenient excuse, it’s an excuse that makes you feel good about yourself.
It lets you see yourself as some creative genius and fuels your delusions of grandeur.
You’re getting an ego-high from your own mental masturbation.
But, at the end of the day, this route leaves you looking back on your life with absolutely nothing to show for all of your great ideas.
What a True Perfectionist Does Vs. What You Do
There are many elite-level athletes, artists, business executives, and people in higher echelons of life who are perfectionists.
Unlike, you, though, they test their craft in the real world.
Michael Jordan was a relentless perfectionist, but he played in games.
Ernest Hemingway was known for editing his books to a masochistic degree, but he still published them.
Great business people are constantly looking to refine their products, but they still try to sell them.
You’re just wasting time and you know it. So stop.
