Have you ever heard the expression “done is better than perfect”? If you consider yourself a perfectionist, you might be wondering – how do I stop being a perfectionist? Why am I perfectionist? And how is it holding me back in my yoga practice or other areas of my life?

It’s a common phrase that reminds us of a fundamental and vital truth — one that applies to yoga, to work, to relationships, and to every aspect of life.

The pursuit of perfection — and the desire to have everything *just right* before we let it go into the world — can sometimes be our biggest barrier to action.

We tell ourselves things like “I’ll look for a new job, but only once I learn a new skill to put on my resume” or “I’ll start going to yoga class, but only once I fix my form.” We place roadblocks and checkpoints in our own way and end up limiting our greater potential.
