I get it, you want everything to be perfect and that’s ok. Make sure to cross all of your T’s and dot your i’s but don’t let that quest for perfection hinder you from progressing toward your goal.
Don’t hide behind perfection. As entrepreneurs, your brand is all you have and it’s understandable that you’d go to great lengths to make sure nothing can tarnish that brand. But often times new entrepreneurs talk themselves out of moving forward with projects because things aren’t “perfect”. Pay very close attention to this next sentence.
Nothing will ever be perfect. Ever.
Well actually, that’s a lie. Your plan can be perfect, but plans mean nothing without action. And believe me when I say once you put some action behind your plan, you’ll see how imperfect it actually is.
We put so much stress on perfection that we forget to do. Without actually doing and putting that action behind it, your “perfect” plans won’t yield any results. When you do, yes it makes you vulnerable to mistakes but it also opens up the communication channels for feedback if and when those mistakes are made. With those communication lines open, you can use that feedback to adjust and adapt to the market response of your product or service.
Don't be reluctant to prioritize.
Another mistake many entrepreneurs make is trying to do too much, all at once. When you’re starting, it can be easy to become overwhelmed with the number of tasks that need to be completed for your business to succeed. So don’t be afraid to prioritize and focus on getting the most important things done first before tackling the smaller stuff. You’ll be surprised how much you can accomplish once you put some structure into place and begin implementing it.
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes.
Ready to put some action behind your plan? Or maybe you need help with the plan itself?
