Always be a beginner at something.  Bill Buxton via Saul Kaplan

We need to get over what we were taught in school. Look at Google, everything is always in beta.  Conversation Agent via Robin Dickinson

If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly.  G.K. Chesterton via Lisa Boyce

When I read the above quotes, I feel myself physically relax, perfectionism fading away.

Because anything really worth doing, from parenting to marriage to career to friendship to dreams — we sometimes do rather badly.

Like I did this past week.  So badly that I wanted to quit.  Oh, so desperately.

Which is why when I heard Lisa Boyce quote G.K. Chesterton, it was a gift.

If we're doing things badly, maybe it means that we're doing things worth doing.

And we're in it.   In our lives, our relationships, our dreams. 

Be a beginner.
In Beta.
Doing things Badly.

Feel better?

Me too.
