[Terah] Progress doesn't require perfection


Terah

Recommended Posts

Perfection_Is_The_Enemy_Of_Progress_583.jpg

 

In my internet search I came across this article that gave me some ideas

It actually is that easy: if I want to lose weight I need to eat less kcal.

But I won't count kcal, it's just not for me. I get rebellious and sabotage myself (yes, I'm weird that way :P )
The last challenges (ok, the last 20 challenges) I kept switching goals. No more.

Now I'm goint to stick to my goals and won't alter them just because I can't hit them perfectly.

 

At the end of the challenge I will evaluate, modify if necessary and do again

My most important rule this challenge:
Progress doesn't require perfection, it only requires good enough

Or as my teachers back at school said: good is better than best :)

So if when I screw up I will pick myself up and go again. 
Why+do+we+fall+so+we+can+learn+to+pick+o

 

My quests:

  1. 3 meals a day, no snacking
    Less eating moments is less kcal. I can eat whatever I like during these meals. So if I want chocolate or ice cream or something like that, that's okay, it just has to be part of the meal
  2. Work on improving my business so I can make more money
    Right now I make very little money with my business. It's enough to buy something extra now and again, but it would be nice to have a little more income. 
    I've bought a course on webshop design and a course about writing for the internet (how search engines can find you and such) and I'm going to level up my webshop using these tools.
    Goal: work on these courses and the actions emanating from it for at least 3 hours each week.

I love your challenge. It's inspiring to see someone who aims for a goal but recognizes that life happens and sometimes we fall down, but that's okay. I look forward to seeing how you do.

I hear ya loud and clear. I'm kind of new to the Rebellion (on my third challenge right now) and I sort of instinctively aim high with a lot of stuff. But I'm often thinking about my Level 50 (which resembles a cross between Bear Grylls, a Na'vi, and Tarzan). So rather than feel distressed when I don't meet every goal, I instead ask myself: Did I take steps closer to my Level 50? If so, then I feel successful.

Week 0, day 1

 

Quest 1: 3 meals a day, no snacking
Very close. I had one snack in the afternoon (chocolate), but I put the rest away and moved the hell on. I did get thoughts like 'I messed up already, just give in', but I remembered: progress doesn't require perfection, so I stayed strong :)  

 

Quest 2: Work on improving my business so I can make more money
No time for that today

 

This afternoon the real estate agent showed our house to a young man. And right after that he placed a bid!!!! I'm so happy :D It could still fall through off course, but I'm hopeful this is it. He didn't bid the asking price, but the minimum we needed, and the real estate agent is going to try to get a higher price from him. 

So all that cleaning and moving stuff wasn't for nothing :) 

We also went to look at a house in the evening. This house was foreclosed by the bank. We didn't knew that when we went there (wasn't on the site), and the house was just sad. Sure it was big and the price is right, but everything showed the people who lived there moved away angry. The house was dirty, and a lot of stuff was just stripped. They took the stove and the fridge, even the bathroom mirror with them. There was a dent in the bathroom door, the height of a man's fist... With some effort and a lot of TLC we could make it beautiful again, I'm sure. But right now this was a very sad house. 

We're going to check out two more houses this week. I really like both of them. One is a bit above our price range, but I'm hoping our real estate agent can help lower the price.

WE SOLD THE HOUSE!!!!

We still need to wait for the building inspection, but if there are no major issues there (I don't expect there to be) the deal is sealed :D  

 

Quest 1: 3 meals a day, no snacking
Big fail today. I blame the arriving of the sharks. 

 

Quest 2: Work on improving my business so I can make more money

I worked about an hour on the course and made a functional design of my new webshop.

This sounds like an opportunity to make it what you want it to be.  Of cours, that requires extra expenses so it depends on how 'right' the price is.  Good luck. You'll find that perfect house.

It is, but it also brings along extra costs, and I don't think we can afford it. Off course, I'll have to make a spreadsheet to crunch the numbers to know for sure ;) 

Thanks :) I'm hopeful for the two houses we'll be checking out on Friday. One of them looks like the perfect combination of all the good stuff we've seen in other houses without much of the downsides. The other one looks even more perfect, but we will need to bring the price down by a lot, and I'm not entirely sure that is possible.
