Just Do It

Better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing flawlessly. (Robert Schuler, late pastor)

Motivation speaker Kary Oberbrunner says, “Perfectionism is just fear in disguise.” Such fear may well result in a lack of effort, an unwillingness to do anything. To which Schuler’s comment is noteworthy. Or to put it another way, “Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly.” We should strive to do better, but don’t stop doing it just because the results might not be perfect.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters (Colossians 3:23).
