Recently I heard the saying: Perfectionism leads to procrastination.

Think about that for a second. Take a minute if necessary.

For me the instant I heard that saying it was like the hot knife in the butter. Those words pierced my being. It was MY TRUTH. I think they call that the “A-ha” moment in therapy. You know what I’m talking about. The second that you hear something that sums up everything you’ve been unable to pinpoint for a long time. Ahh, now I can relax. I’ve correctly identified a driving factor in my personality. I can finally relax because the hard work is done!

Now that I’m armed with the knowledge that I procrastinate because I want things to be “just right” I have no excuse not to get going with some of my “scary goals”. That’s when it dawned on me… My work is just beginning.

Scary thing #1) Adventures in online marketing of my business. My business as a Realtor in the Birmingham Michigan area.

So without any further ado, I present you with my very first post on my very first blog.

I’m not nearly qualified to have a professional blog, because frankly, I’m a horrible writer. BUT, I know that my pursuit for perfection can no longer hold me back from my need to get out there and make myself seen and heard on the web. Be kind to me, I’m new at this.

I look forward to challenging myself with this endeavor. I may not be a good writer, but I’m a great Realtor, and I know my market very well. Did I mention that I’m also extremely humble? So I plan to write about what I know. I’ll do my best to bring you content and some humor.

Come along on this journey with me. At the very least, it may be worth the laugh.
