IT’S ABOUT PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION
Last year, at the Summit Consulting Convention in Atlanta, I heard Alan Weiss make the statement, “It’s about progress, not perfection” and it has stuck with me. The funny thing is that I find myself repeating it to my clients more often than not.
So often individuals are not making any progress in their business because they are waiting for everything to be perfect. They are not starting their blog post because they cannot make it perfect. They are not launching their web site because it is not perfect yet. They are not doing what they should be doing to grow their business because they have not perfected what it is they want to do. What are you waiting for?
Are You Waiting for Perfection
Stop waiting for perfection and make some progress. We have to kill the inner critic, which feeds on perfection. We need to stop self-editing and start with the end result you are looking for and work towards that end. It does not have to be perfect. Perfectionism is the biggest killer to our success. Don’t worry about making mistakes, everybody does from time to time. Just be yourself and start moving forward.
Success is not as hard as we make it sometimes. It is very simple: just get started making progress and then repeat it. Do not wait for things to be perfect. Do not stop, just get started. It is the courage to continue that counts, even when you do not feel like it. It’s the courage to continue even after we have failed.
Success has more to do with persistence and resilience then talent. Stop waiting for perfection and get started!
