Progress Not Perfection

Let's take a look at another fundamental building block for success. And as you probably read it from the title. It's going to be progress, not perfection. Now this is coming from a recovering perfectionist. That's me. A moment of confession, you might relate to. When you're trying to make it all so awesome that you're dotting all the I's and crossing all the T's to try and make it perfect. But every time you look at it again you find something that needs to be fixed. That is why I say progress, not perfection because when we are seeking perfection we will never be done. Think about all those different projects that you have been trying to complete but there's always something that still needs to be done so it never really gets finished. As humans, we never seem satisfied and we always seem to find fault with ourselves and our circumstances. You look at yourself in the mirror and wish you looked better or thinner. When was the last time you looked at yourself in the mirror and said hey, I look good! In order for it to be easier to change, you first have to accept it. The moment you accept the thing as is, it is so much easier to change. It's progress that counts. Because, even if it's 80% done it will work beautifully and along the way, you can improve it and make modifications to it. Whereas if you try to get it 100% right or 100% perfect which we rarely get to because we're always finding the 1% that needs fixing, then we will never complete it. What if you have a big presentation and you keep trying to make it better by adding this and deleting that and so on? It never gets done. it's a big day. With all that delay you could miss out on an opportunity to actually pitch and get feedback so you can improve. At the end of the day, whatever you're doing, you're trying to serve someone you're trying to support someone. We're trying to make a difference in their lives. And if they don't give us their feedback then what is the use? So let's say you make that presentation, and then you get feedback on what your audience is looking for, you tweak it, present it again and it goes to a whole new level because now you are on the same page. Whether it's your website or whatever else you're trying to do as an entrepreneur, unless you put your services out there you don't know if somebody needs it or not.

So start looking at the different items on your to-do list, and instead of waiting to perfect it, just get it done, and with that, you will make progress. Make it count. It could be tiny, it could be big but take a step forward, even if it's a baby step, take one step forward because it counts. It could even be clearing the clutter in your house. Pick up one thing every day and put it away. The first few days you may only pick up one thing at a time, maybe after a few days you'll start picking up two things. It just accelerates the momentum for you and before you know it the space will be so much more presentable. It's the same principle that applies everywhere and once you start making this a way of life, you achieve progress. Remember, to take small baby steps and you will be amazed at how far you'll go pretty quickly.

I'm really looking forward to hearing about your many adventures, as you start embodying this particular principle. It has made a huge difference for me. If you have any questions, reach out and I will see you in the next video. Take care.
