We’re just a few days from the end! Get in your final miracles so that you can finish with a sense of accomplishment.
For the last several weeks I’ve been working on a big project at the newspaper and it’s almost done – it’s scheduled to be sent to the printers today! It’s so exciting for me to start something and then complete it. For a while I was feeling down about the project because I knew that it wasn’t the best work I was possibly capable of.
But for the last several days I’ve been allowing myself a little break. The conditions under which I was producing this (ie – it’s a guide of all things winter and it goes to print before there’s snow on the ground, so there’s no room for photos and first person stories, which is what I’m best at) weren’t conducive to it being my best possible work. However, within those conditions, it’s still a really solid piece. So what if it’s not perfect? Always pushing myself to be PERFECT is what got me so neurotic in the first place!
Today I’m just going to enjoy the fact that this year’s guide is done.
