    It's more about progress. So, it's less about perfection and more about action.
    I spend 100% of my time making things perfect and only 25% finished instead of good enough and 100% finished.
    Edit: I love this video! It has helped me be less of a perfectionist at work. I have a lot to do, and not enough space to put things. So, staying organized is important, but spending too much time organizing doesn't help, it actually hurts.

    These are all good ideas thanks, I should be more organised now.
    A slight detail though: for food, I prefer to go by the smell and look of it because the dates are often just vague recommendations that do not necessarily indicate when it'll go off.

    Little bits of paper EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Honestly I don't know what I would do without a whiteboard, I'm a serial tree killer but I've probably saved a few since I got a whiteboard/pin board... It's on the wall next to my bed near the light switch so I always see it, my lecturer @ uni said "But How dO you SLEeP!" ahaha, but it does help me going to bed and waking up knowing I'm getting things done instead of procrastinating so much!

    @4:32 , I read what the bin says : "Hurt". Date of expiry :Yesterday.
    I know it's yoghurt 😂 but I'll take it as "being hurt was enough for yesterday and those feels expire today"

    All the things seem like common sense and I've come to all of these conclusions at one time-point or another, but... having them put together so neatly and explained so simply really helps me create a clearer image of what I ought to do! Thank you! A very wise and useful video. :) Time to get myself together!
