Dreamers vs Do-ers

Are you a dreamer or a do-er?

I am 100% positively a dreamer. I enjoy sitting back and thinking about all the wonderful things I want to do. I spend hours, hundreds of hours, mentally rearranging my house. If I got off my ass and actually rearranged my house, it would be done a lot sooner.

I think a lot of it comes down to my insane perfectionism. I rarely get things just the way I want them to be. I am rarely truly pleased with the outcome of something I do, or create. It's something I NEED to get over, and fast, because nothing is getting done.

Creating my day zero list has helped. A lot. I have always enjoyed ticking things off lists (hence why I have a filofax simply stuffed with lists) But this is more than a "buy toilet paper/call builder" kind of list (rest assured there are hundreds of those unfinished lists floating around). This is my life list.

These are the things I have in my mind that I want to do, want to achieve, and havng them there to remind me all the time to do something about them has helped...a lot.

Are you a dreamer like me? Or are you a get-in-there-and-do-it kind of gal?

If you are the latter...please...any tips you can offer are greatly appreciated


  1. I'm definitely a dreamer. But those rare days when I actually get off my butt and become a do-er, I feel SO GOOD! And proud of myself! That almost inspires me to get some stuff done when I get home tonight!

    I need a nap... :)

  2. I'm a dreamer too...well a sh*t-talker really. And I also blame my perfectionism. In fact when I watch Hoarders and they talk about how they can't clean at all because they can't get it just right I look around my own apartment and shudder. Because I get it. Luckily my shame is stronger than my perfectionism and I haul out the vacuum every couple of weeks.
