Imagine you are a sculptor. A sculptor looks at his or her piece of stone and endlessly questions new ways to shape it. And if he or she thinks of something to change, there is no emotional attachment. They just do it.
This is how you need to see yourself--as a work of art, always in progress.
No need to get upset, or come down hard on yourself when you see something you do not like. Instead, like an artist, just get to work.
