It's Not About Perfect, It's About Passion

Ever hear statements like these?
"The client doesn't care when it's done, they just want it perfect."
"I don't want to show my idea to anyone until it's just right."
"I'm new and don't want to make a mistake, so I'll just do what I'm being told to do."
All of the above statements are either untrue or just plain dangerous in business. And, even if we don't subscribe to them, when we hear them, we're tempted to buy in to them and nod our heads.

It's not about perfection. It's about ownership and accountability; it's about making sure what you're doing inspires you and then sharing it with others.

The best performers know:

  • That time is always a factor.
  • That sharing concepts and ideas to get feedback and input is smart.
  • They don't have all the answers, but know people who can help them.
If everything you're involved in makes sense to you, and it is what you would do for your brother or sister (meaning you think it's the right thing), and you are willing to be vulnerable to make it even better, then you're almost guaranteed success.
