This is the FIRST National Author’s day as an OFFICIAL author, and I still can’t believe it.

I never thought I would write a book. Ever.

I’m not a great speller and my grammar leaves something to be desired.

Everyone always made fun of me for it.

I worked hard to do my best to overcome it, but even now when I write thousands of words a week for social media, blog posts, and newsletters I still worry that I made a mistake.

I check my work and usually have a proofreader but even so, things fall through the cracks.

And yet, when my mom passed away I needed a way to honor her and channel my feelings. So I wrote.

It seemed like the best thing to do at the time.

So I did something I thought I would never do, and to make up for my personal flaws, I had a professional editor and proofreader, beta readers, and my typesetter look over everything to make sure it was perfect.

Are there still typos? Probably

Is it perfect? Nope, but it’s as close as I could get to that.

Is it published? Yup!

Perfect is the enemy of done. Sometimes good enough, is really good enough.

As a recovering perfectionist I’m tempted to sometimes not put things out if they aren’t perfect but my high school art teacher, Mr. Barnes taught me you have to know when to walk away from your art and when it is done even if there may be more you can do.

I had to push back the publication date on this book several times because we genuinely weren’t finished.

But once we got to the point of almost perfect, I pulled the trigger because the day I selected, the 2nd anniversary of my mother’s death, was too important to miss. I reasoned that I could fix any errors in an updated edition, and that’s what I did.

I hope this inspires you to not sit on a goal, and never let others put your dreams down or let you think you aren’t good enough to get something done.

I also hope that this book will help you manage your day-to-day Jewish life as well as for all those special times in the Jewish calendar.
