Culmination of Efforts

RUNNERbToday was the District Conference where they showed the animated videos I made for our church board reports. They seemed to be well received and I had a good time watching them. That’s a little rare for me. I usually end up being an armchair quarterback over my own work, which can be quite an unpleasant experience. Today I decided to be different. I decided to view the time as a culmination of a lot of work. I decided to enjoy it and realize the editing time was done. The time to tweak it has long since passed. I decided to see it as finished and feel the joy of a job well done.

I can always find a problem with anything I create, and I bet you might be the same. This is really nothing more than self-defeating perfectionism. Better to finish a piece, ship it, enjoy being done and then move on to what’s next. It’s strange, viewing it this way, I felt alive and ready to take on what is next.
