Stop looking for perfection…

I’m going to be short and to the point on this one…

Stop looking for perfection and look for improvement instead!

The quest for perfection is what has so many of you looking for the 1 thing that will fix your life by next week…

Let me ask you a blunt question…

How’s that working so far?

This is your life and I’m here to tell you that you CAN have the life you want, but you have to be willing to do it in steps…

Perfection isn’t going to happen — but constant improvement can!

So many of you want to know how to make your life better, how to get the life of your dreams and how I got to where I am from where I was…

The answer to all of those questions is the same —

You get there 1 step of improvement of a time!

  • Stop trying to be perfect
  • Stop trying to FIX it all by next week
  • Stop looking for the new answer to your dreams

and START improving every day…

Do it and your life will change — I know it for a fact!

Leave me a comment and tell me if you are ready to let go of perfection and embrace improvement…

    This piece of advice is sound, but what is the first step? Or the one after that? And how much time will it take before I drown in the negativity that is surrounding me and, it appears, many others in this challenging economy?

    Yesterday, I had a treatment from my chiropractor who is an absolute miracle worker, and he told me he recognized that he had been the cause of the real estate and economic crash. How, you ask? Well, he recognized that he had never accepted that he had enough, so he pushed the envelope, like everyone else, and didn’t use sound judgment in choosing his investments, so he lost a ton of money. My question is, is there “enough?” Was this the problem? Are we to be content with our current circumstances and not try to make the pie bigger? Not in my mind.

    In any case, this weekend I discovered another way to increase my real estate business, so, despite the finance stress under which I have been for some time, I continue to progress, one step at a time.

    Thank you, Kristen.

    Hi Kristen,
    Very true, everything in life must be taken one step at a time. Just like when you were a baby you learned to take one step at a time till you were able to walk on your own. Perfection I beleive to be overly rated nobody is perfect. I myself have so much more to learn and if I was perfect I wouldn’t need to learn anything!
    Thank you for all you do>

    No man is perfect, but we are called to be perfect as our Father in heaven. At one point in our lives, when we surrender our hearts and our wills to our Father, immediate divine moment he unites our weaknesses to his ultimate love and perfection.

    Hi Kristen,

    Thanks for the post.

    It’s so important to be reminded to not get caught up in trying to achieve perfection. I’ve often tried to think along the same lines by focusing on excellence instead of perfection.

    And it’s amazing how much the small changes made every day can add up to over time.

  6. Janet says:

    Ok, I am looking to be happier not perfection but since my husband of 25 years in unable to move forward from a bad decision I made over 6 years ago I wonder if I should be the one to man up and end it.

  7. Manuela says:

    I don’t know why I am so unhappy and I do ‘t try to change things. I leave them as they are
    and my depression doesn’t go away.

  8. Ailsa says:

    Perfection is a silly word,I am just grateful I wake up every morning,and I take every moment as precious. Live in the present moments, your past is just away to get to the pleasant moments to come ..I promise..

  11. I am puzzled. I am try to sort this out.

    What I am doing, my writing as in my blog, is something I know I can do. Something that could help a lot of people. I know this, feel it and have been told by others.

    Puzzle? This has never been a dream or real desire, therefore it is difficult to feel passion, desire or excitement. It is difficult to write because I have to force myself.

    Do I want perfection? Probably, or at least I need to find energy behind my writing. Because I can write I had hoped to turn it into a lucrative way to make money, but something is not right.

    Hey Kristen!

    U DO HAVE a point in this blog!

    But, what about “Jonathan Livingstone Seagull”- in which it syas, emphatically- “Heaven IS PERFECT”!

    Or , may be, its the FRUSTRATION that people “feel” that they have not yet “ATTAINED” perfection…..

    Dear Kristen Howe,
    I guess I have stumbled on an idea that will take me to where I want ultimately to be. I can move in inches and then go from there. One big leap may be needed if you are faced with a chasm and need to go to the other side from where you are right now. But making that big leap is no guarantee that you will succed in doing so. Another way of getting to that other side is going down the chasm inch by inch. It may take a long time to get to the other side but you will most likely reach it.
    Thank you for your email today.
    Truly yours,

  20. I’m not looking for perfection, but I am looking for a sign that will tell me that I am going in the right direction, that the missing pieces to the puzzle are right in front of me. And that I am doing the one thing that I have intended to do.

    It’s easy to keep working and dreaming of what you want, but it would be nice to know if I am on the right path.

    What do you mean “by next week”? Try yesterday!!!

    Hi kristen,

    Your advice always cuts the core of how I think, I am always trying to change everything in one go and now I know exactly how to change it!! I have a good life but I want it to be even better and I know the steps to make that happen, it will be a slow process but I can do it in managable chunks so I can deal with it all. Thank you Kristen you are very wise x

  24. Sidra Umar says:

    Agreed, Small steps are a gurrentee for success. I was recalling the story of turtle and rabit while going through your blog. slow and steady win the race.

  25. vida says:

    great, and in response to Rosemary, i think what she meant is: perfection and improvement are of the same quality, but not the same quantity, and what you should go for is just quality, and then steadily the quantity will increase step by step.

  26. Amy says:

    Thank you, Kristen! This is my whole problem- I’m trying to find the one magic “button” that will make my life wonderful. That button doesn’t exist. My problem is that I am one of those people who has had to rework her life- set up new goals and start moving in a new direction- and I’m anxious because I’m ready to get to the next phase- It can’t seem to come fast enough. I guess that is where your advice comes in- but what do you do when you feel like you do not have patience for the steps?
