Perfectionism and self-imposed standards
The reason I was thinking about this is because I have noticed how much people now juggle in their lives. There are the jobs and the career ladders, there are families, fitness and wealth - just to list a few. The thing is there is such limited time and we all desire to achieve and experience so much. So how do we do it all? Well you can attempt to structure your life to fit everything in but that stops being fun. Even those things you have passion for lose their sparkle when they are forced. So what do you do? The answer is prioritise. You list the few things that are really important. What IS really important to you? Is it the perfect body, the wellbeing of your children, the relationship, the career or owning something ridiculous? Once you know the three priorities consider focusing on those and allowing yourself time for you.
The thing is there is we only have so much time and energy. I look at energy levels like water. Where is the water flowing to and where are the leaks? Where do you gain your water from? I know it is simple the thing is there is so much pressure to be perfect, to make things that are perfect yet we live in an imperfect world. In the end we end up burnt-out from doing so much all of the time. Sometimes your priority may well to sit eating a nice cake with a coffee staring into space. Having time to do nothing or as some call it - 'me' time... Now that might be perfection.
