527 - Excellence vs Perfection in Home Management

There is no such thing as perfection.

There just isn’t. Don’t let social media fool you. What about those pictures you see as you’re scrolling through your phone? Those aren’t real. Perfection isn’t real. But how do we get our brain and subconscious mind to understand this? 

When you see me, you are getting the 100% real me. I don’t use filters. I don’t even know how to use filters. I need to show you the real me. What you see is what you get.

I am not a perfectionist. I am a woman of excellence. This episode will help you understand how you are also a person of excellence and what that means.

Aristotle said, “We are what we repeatedly do..therefore excellence is not an act but a habit.”

The habits taught through the Organize 365® systems and courses lead us to be people of excellence. These same habits help us free our brains and time to do what we are uniquely created to do.

Habits are so purposeful. Negative habits tend to happen naturally. But positive habits rarely occur naturally. I want you to think about your habits – are they helping you be a person of excellence? Are they allowing you the time to do what you are uniquely created to do?

I want you to choose a life of excellence over perfectionism. Don’t expect perfectionism from yourself or others. A person of excellence can focus on substance, richer conversations, better solutions, and live a more productive life.

A word of the wise, choosing not to be a perfectionist is not an excuse to be lazy. You still need to strive for excellence. This will look different depending on your phase of life and priorities. 

I want to leave you with three things in this episode:

  1. Perfectionism is not a thing.
  2. Excellence is a great middle-ground for you to strive for.
  3. You will never be done working on yourself, learning, growing, and creating the person you want to be. It’s a journey.

As you think about your journey, I want you to also think about your home and the three seasons per year within your home. You need different things in those seasons. A person of excellence continually improves and evolves the way they organize and use their home and time.
