The Imperfect Roundup

Imperfect Roundup #25

“Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” –Samuel Beckett

Happy New Year!

This week, we wrote about overcoming our waves of emotion and letting go of closed doors. There’s a story on “It’s Only Fear,” a song by Alexi Murdoch, and we’re excited about relaunching The Imperfectionist Book Club in 2018. We’ll be reading The Icarus Deception by Seth Godin, The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown, The War of Art by Steven Pressfield, or Let Your Life Speak by Parker Palmer. If you hurry, you can pick your favorite on Twitter before the poll closes.

We’d love to hear from you with thoughts, suggestions, or just to say hello. Email or tweet to us!

Some things we thought were worth sharing this week:

  • Favorite comic this week:

  • We’ve thought a lot about New Year’s resolutions this month, and whether we want to make one. Most resolutions fail. They fail because we set goals that are unrealistic, and they fail because we attempt to try to change our habits overnight. It’s easy to give up when we don’t meet our overly ambitious goals. Instead, commit to something tiny and seemingly insignificant. Over time, the small can become something bigger. Habits aren’t built overnight, and they’re not only built in January.
