Default The spirit of "play" can help with perfectionism...

As an experiment I just posted a 65,000 word blog post from my 2018 and 2019 Quora archives. I had downloaded my answers from the site before deleting my account last year. They have been sitting on my hard drive gathering electronic dust since.

Almost all the answers had to do with questions about Soulmates and Twin Flames plus a few other related occult topics. So putting them all in one document shouldn't totally confuse the search engines.

What I am doing is developing a habit of publishing imperfection. I guarantee the blog post is full of imperfect writing. Lots of it. Too big to edit and get published immediately. So I didn't bother trying. Too big to overthink.

Something interesting is happening since publishing. More ideas are showing up for things to write post and reports about both related to the post and other topics.

I think it is important to get the flow going no matter what it takes. Got a ways to go myself. Gonna get there!
Hi Eric,

That's a great attitude!

It makes me think of those traditional carpet weavers... The ones that would purposely stitch a flaw into the carpet design... It was a reminder that only the Eternal One is perfect...

Perfectionism can be very paralyzing... It can hold people back more than they realize - especially in entrepreneurial activities!

I do think one "solution" is to start playing...

When you were a kid, you were playing... You didn't care about things being "perfect"... You just wanted to have some fun...

Being able to recapture that kind of attitude, I believe, can also help...

Best wishes!
