This is me… always fine-tuning. I could spend hours rearranging items on a shelf or pictures on a wall to try to get them “just right.” When objects on the shelf somehow slide out of place on the shelf in our living room, I’ve been known to jump up from watching TV to realign them.
New systems, habits and setups take time to perfect. Often, we make a plan, but as the days go by, we find that things are not going as smoothly as we had hoped. This doesn’t mean we are on the wrong track or that we have made mistakes, only that we need to make a few small adjustments. Ongoing refinements and tweaks keep us engaged and focused until the new situation fits us like a glove.
Have you tried something new this month? Is it better, but still not perfect? Don’t be afraid to try a few modifications. Eventually, you will have a well-oiled machine.
