Hey friends,

Recently I have noticed that I was trying to be a bit of a perfectionist when it came to my website with getting the layout right and putting in the custom code and so on but I realised that a lot of the stuff I was doing were small and to be honest no one would really care so I thought to myself well why am I doing this if it is not that important and the answer I came up with was that I was doing it so I could have the pride of saying "my website is perfect". Essentially I was optimising for perfection but perfection doesen't really exist because if something is rid of all flaws it can't get better which is not good because it cannot grow therefor it will get worse. So I was optimising for something that didn't exist and I was doing it completely unconsciously because from a young age we are all thought that

Perfection is the best thing to have and it is what you should always be aiming for. -Everyone

When in actuality it doesen't exist because improvement is infinite and always will be.

Have a great week!


Quote of The Week

Many of us believe that we follow an inner moral compass, but the history of social psychology richly demonstrates that other people exert a powerful force, able to make cruelty seem acceptable and altruism seem embarrassing, without giving us any reasons or arguments.

My Favourite Things This Week

  1. Website Design - Since I made a website I have been recently tweaking the design a bit and I really like it.
  2. Exercise - I have recently started taking exercise more seriously in the pursuit of sorting myself out and I have been rather enjoying it in a different way. I guess you could say it's a different type of fun(more on that in a future issue).
