If you want to start turning your ideas into bankable business results, this quick tip could be exactly what you need!
Geoff sent me an email this morning, which contained the following, powerful statement.
“I waited so long to get things perfect that by the time I was ready to go, it was too late and the opportunity had passed.”
Perfection isn’t required
Geoff is not alone. The road to perfection is littered with lost opportunities and broken dreams. The crazy thing is, not only is perfection pretty-much impossible, it’s never even required!
Think about it, is there a single product or service, which cannot be improved upon in some way? No. Nothing in the marketplace is perfect.
So, here’s a suggestion
Instead of planning until everything is perfect, plan until you have something that will work, then, as Steve Jobs used to say, “ship it!” That’s all you need.
Take a look at an idea you have been working on, which isn’t quite perfect for the market yet. Then, consider what you need to do, in order to make that idea good enough to work. Remember, you will be able to refine and improve it as much as required, after it’s launched. That’s what every successful business in history has done.
In short — Stop aiming for the impossibility of perfection. Instead, focus your thinking power on the achievable goal of making something, which is good enough to work.
