Today, let’s dive into a topic that’s close to all our hearts: perfection. How many times have you stopped yourself from doing something because you feared it wouldn’t be perfect? Well, let’s unravel that notion today.

I’ll be the first to admit it – I’m far from perfect. Look at me right now; I’ve got one earring on, a small imperfection, but here I am, speaking to you nonetheless. Why? Because perfection shouldn’t hold us back. In fact, I’m taking this imperfect action to demonstrate that imperfection is okay. It’s okay to feel uncomfortable; it’s okay to be imperfect. The key is to push through regardless.


So, let’s break down perfection into three crucial points:

  1. The Ever-Elusive Perfect: Will it ever be perfect? What exactly are we waiting for? Each iteration, each attempt – are any of them truly perfect? Instead of waiting for an unattainable ideal, why not embrace imperfection and take action?
  2. Perfect Compared to What?: Who defines perfection anyway? Often, our perception of perfection is skewed. What matters most is whether your audience notices the difference. Sometimes, imperfect action is not just acceptable but necessary for progress.
  3. The Cost of Perfectionism: What does it cost us to strive for perfection? Time, frustration, missed opportunities, lost clients, and revenue. Waiting for perfection before acting means missing out on valuable learning experiences. Remember, growth comes from doing, not from waiting. 

So, here’s your challenge:
