I recently heard a TED speaker saying she is a recovering addict of perfectionism. And I was like, ‘Yes, that’s me!’
Throughout my life, I have always wanted to do my best.
I wanted to have a complete suited office before opening doors. I wanted to have at least 3 months of fully edited blog posts before I posted the first. I wanted our entire social platforms to be perfect before I asked friends to like the pages. Yes, I always wanted everything ready, in plenty and in perfection before I took the next step.
The danger with this view is that you can keep postponing doing something vital as you wait for perfection.
In business however and especially when running a small business perfection can’t work – you can’t wait to have all social media platforms in perfection before sharing them because you simply don’t have all the time for that.
You can’t wait for the ‘perfect’ office before opening doors because you don’t have the resources to do that.
You must market your business today, to get the clients to enable you to grow. The money you need to
perfect the office will come from the clients you need to see today.
Your current situation won’t change by waiting for perfection before acting. Your situation will change by using what you have
today to get money to do what you want.
No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, show up and never give up.
