Manage episode 275336794 series 2035009
If you’ve ever launched a business or started a project, you know that the litany of things you need to accomplish can be overwhelming. Sometimes, it’s overwhelming to the point of causing you not to start at all or to stop prematurely.
Today’s episode is about getting you to start even if the list seems like it’s never-ending. It doesn’t have to be perfect, you just need to get what you want to say or create out into the world for people to enjoy. Done is better than perfect.
"I firmly believe done is better than perfect. Start before you're ready. Start before you're ready because the world needs to hear what you say. And I promise you it's going to be messy at first. That's okay. Get the messy versions out of the way. Do it again and again and again. And you're going to start to get really great feedback.” ~ @avanimiriyalaMain Takeaways
- Perfect is just a story. It doesn’t exist, so stop trying to achieve it. That doesn’t mean you should do low-quality work, just stop aiming for perfection.
- If you strive for perfection, you’re just going to get in your own way. People want what you have to say and they want it now.
- It’s going to be messy at first, but feedback on those messy things is what you will need to make better versions of your content.
- Keep pushing. Even when it feels uncomfortable or challenging, just know that the feedback and the friction will make the result even better.
