Perfection vs. Getting it Done
Well, that hit the nail on the head! The leading cause of not getting it done is getting wrapped up in perfection. Today, everything is changing all the time. Just when you understand your phone, oops here comes an update and everything looks different, acts differently. Aruuuugh! Will it ever be ‘perfect’? Can it ever be perfect? Updates will happen, new things will be created, old things will fade away and become obsolete. Do you even remember a landline with an answering machine!?! Holding yourself to a level of perfection only holds you back from moving forward. I’m big on “DO” I am always asking, ok what can I do now to manage this. I left my ideas of perfection in the dust. I’d rather get it done and update it than wait till some future time when I think it ‘s perfect. Which it will never be because lookout, here comes another update…
Strive for excellence, which sounds better than perfection, doesn’t it? Somewhere we get trapped into thinking if it’s not perfect I will look foolish, I will look sloppy, I will look unprofessional. Not posting or launching will definitely keep you and your ideas a big secret. No one will ever have the opportunity to be empowered by your particular magic. It is easier today than ever to edit a misspelling or correct a date. Guess what you are not getting graded on this life. If you don’t do it, then it will never ever happen. Waiting for more inspiration or information and then launching your business 6 months from now, only delays your learning curve. Until you put it out there ugly scars and all you will not know what the next logical steps should be.
Take the Next Step
Your next logical steps depend on where you are in your business.
