While it’s not always the case, sometimes I need to remind myself that my client’s needs are much simpler than I think they are.

I am a perfectionist in many ways. It is a blessing and a curse. I like to over-deliver. And many times it’s more for myself than for my client. But we both receive the benefits, I just sacrifice more time.


The image above is from the inspirational book Change The Way You See Everything, which discusses the concept of “asset-based thinking.” I have the image posted in my office, in plain sight so I can see it when I am working. It reminds me of another of my favorite quotes: “don’t let perfect ruin good.”


What daily reminders do you have?  Do you continue to collect them? Where do you put them in your life to ensure they are remembered and the lessons are followed?
