Obsession, by Hilary P.

It should really be my france of choice.... who even makes that, Elizabeth Taylor?
I've been making business cards for Call the Shots, I considered posting them here -- but I want all the excitement to happen when I hand them to you, because, of course, they are going to be amazing. :) Plus, I've already sent protypes to 1/2 of you anyway.
I just could NOT give-up on them, I wanted to research every angle of how expensive they'd be, I wanted them to be perfectly aligned I wanted it ALL to be perfect. Hours and hours on a business card that I don't expect to bring me that much revenue....
I don't even want that much from it -- just had to be perfect.
This week, during church, I wrote down 5 thigns that I'd like to improve on this week and frankly, I'm not doing well at all. One of them was less obsessive (one other was less time on the internet, which looking at every single business card store out there didn't help)... so, I guess it's something I'm gonna have to strive for... wish me luck. :)


  1. We had a great YW lesson last week about changing bad habits or working on something you'd like to work on. She had someone get up and name off 5 habits that people could have and likened them to 5 balls. She gave 1 ball to the girl to "work on" or "juggle." So it wasn't too bad with just working on one, but if you threw all five at her, it was nearly impossible. It helped me realize...I thing at a time. I tend to be an all or nothing person sometimes so it's better to for me to feel productive if I do something instead of working on everything at once and give up.

  2. Loving the one thing at a time analogy. It' all I can handle anyway.

  3. Isn't it funny how we all want what we don't have. I wish I was more obsessive. I'm not a perfectionist at all and I wish I was. What do you do?!
