I just finished a big project at work.  I launched my little baby project out into the world.  Now, I'm just waiting for people to start using and loving it. 

I've said before that I'm a do-er. I love a good list. I love checking things off the list.  So, why don't I love finishing a project that I've been working on for 6 months and thinking about for over a year?

Don't get me wrong, I am super excited for people to use this new platform. I'm so happy that its up and running.  But I do feel a little bummed. 

Monday I worked most of the day finishing up some of the behind the scene tasks.  I officially checked off the last task off my big project list.  After everything was done, I felt a little let down.  A little listless. 

"What should I be doing right now?" 

"Did I really think of everything?"

"Is there something else I should have done?"

I don't like this feeling. I want to finish well. 

So, I'm fighting against this perfectionism.  There may be something I forgot but it's released out to the world.  I'm going to stand by and watch people enjoy it.  One deep breath at a time.
