S:1159 Principle: Progress

(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)

 

Perfection. Have you ever delayed a decision, a diet, or a delivery because it was not yet perfect? Well I have. And I’ve missed a lot of good I might have gained because of it.

Perfection has a certain energy to it. Is it scarcity?: “Oh, I’ve only got one shot.” Or fear?: “If it’s not perfect, I’ll be criticized.” Or is something else driving perfection?

The problem with the pursuit of perfection? Continually perfected, but never ‘shipped’ is, well, not shipped.

How about being willing to make imperfect progress?

Imperfect progress is progress. Waiting on perfection is not.

 

Coaching Point: Are you willing to let go of fear, uncertainty, and doubt and make imperfect progress?
