“If you look for perfection, you’ll never be content.” ― Leo Tolstoy
It´s been a long time since I sat in front of a screen and wrote from the heart. I´ve been making a lot of personal observations lately. Mostly that everyone is different. Everyone has different needs, wants, and desires in this life. Many people are envious of my lack of a traditional 9-5 but rarely see the side of the business where I´m stressed trying to make 3 month, 6 month, and 12 month revenue projections to make sure I stay afloat building a business. They don´t battle with the depression when things aren´t going right in business. To many this is an envious and I agree it´s amazing on so many fronts. Mostly because I´m built for it.
As I build websites from the road there are days my mind just isn´t in it. And there are days when that´s all I think about. Something I´ve had to learn the last few months is that instead of striving for the perfect life I need to be content in all things that I have control over and strive to become the person I desire to become. The rest will come in due time.
A part of that for me is letting go of personal expectations. Being confident in the man I am. Being confident in the company I´ve built. Being confident of all the things I´ve had to overcome this far in life and be content in all of this. And make slow consistent growth to constantly improve the things that are in my control, be grateful for them, and work towards making things better.
Letting go isn´t always easy for me. But it´s getting easier. And it´s a daily part of my personal and work life…
