I’ve recorded this short video for you today because I wanted to have a bit of a heart to heart about how Perfectionism will kill your startup – and how to beat it into a pulp before it does. Very blood thirsty I know!
It is a problem for many of us – and you probably already know if I’m talking to you.
In the video I talk about two ways Perfectionism can trip us up as entrepreneurs;
- by stopping us from working or
- by making us work too much.
It sounds contradictory I know, but you’ll have to watch the video to get the inside scoop. Watch here:
So what do we do about this? We need practice not being a perfectionist.
I challenge you to join me over the next 30 days in picking one thing per day that you will finish. Make it something that you can finish in the day. If you’re working on something big, chunk it down into smaller tasks and finish one per day.
Then, when it’s good enough – not when it’s perfect – get it out there or sign off on it or whatever you need to do to know it’s done.
Let’s talk in the comments
If I’m talking to you, then fess up. Tell us what you’re going to do to get on top of perfectionism and let us know how you go.
