Don’t be Perfect

I know what it’s like to have a business. I have so many things that I want to do.

I want all of it to be perfect.

In fact, I could spend an hour making a single social media graphic. I could spend an entire 40 hour work week perfecting my website. I could spend 5 hours writing a blog post.

All in the sake of being perfect.

But you know what? Perfect isn’t always the best way to go.

Perfect can be your downfall.

You should just finish it. Your graphics should look great, but they don’t have to be perfect. Your website should look great, but I’m not sure those are ever perfect. Blog posts should be helpful to your readers, but it doesn’t have to be award winning.

Don’t use perfection as an excuse.

Don’t delay creating a blog because you can’t write perfect posts every week. Don’t delay launching that e-book because it isn’t perfect yet. Just do it!

You can always edit it at a later time, but don’t let perfection be an excuse.

In fact, launching a product that isn’t perfect is absolutely ideal. You’re going to get feedback from users and you can adjust the product to suit their needs!

If you wait on everything being perfect, you’re going to lose out on sales, spend tons of valuable time doing tasks that should be used elsewhere, and you may never actually launch it!

Do you find yourself coming up with amazing plans, research it, start this amazing product, only to never actually finish it? You begin getting bored and discouraged because it isn’t perfect?

Stop doing that!

You’re probably your own worst critic. Do you ever think your own work is ever perfect? I feel I can always tweak and improve nearly every aspect of my business.

You should always be proud of your product, but perfect is a nearly impossible goal to reach. Don’t let that get in the way of you putting out an amazing product.

So, are you pushing back starting/finishing anything in your business because you’re concerned it won’t be perfect?
