There are two sides to my personality – the desire to get stuff done and a perfectionist streak – that are unhelpfully incompatible. I don’t think one is stronger than the other and that’s not a good thing: it’s not a balance – it’s two massively strong pulls, in opposite directions. It can be paralysing at best and confusing to others who don’t know which mode or even mood I’m in.
Anyway, I’m in ‘get stuff done’ mode today, so instead of agonising over how to write the perfect first post and intro to this blog (which until, ooh, this week I had no intention of making a blog), I’m putting this out there so it’s done1. I’ll probably agonise over every other thing I write here but at least this one’s out of the way and I can get on with launching WITAWITA more publicly.
Cheerio for now.
Of course, having published this post, I’ve already tinkered with it because I can’t help myself. Damn it, first post: I wish I knew how to quit you.↩︎
