Too often, people mistake progress for perfection. It’s not about getting it perfect. It’s about getting it out the door, and then adjusting and making tweaks from there. Perfection is the enemy of accomplishing your goals.
Effective work is about moving toward the desired destination, and not necessarily about ensuring that nothing gets spilled or knocked over in the process. Mistakes can and will happen, you just have to accept it. It’s momentum that matters and ensuring that time is not wasted obsessing over the little things that won’t end up moving the needle anyway.
Great things take time to unfold. Set deadlines and stick to them is important. Nothing encourages perfection more than movable deadlines. As soon as you get in the habit of postponing, suddenly whatever it is you’re working on isn’t good enough.
However, when you find yourself getting stressed out, just remember these two amazing quotes…
“The best is the enemy of the good.”
“Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.”
Now, part of prioritizing progress over perfection is putting yourself in an environment that promotes and encourages this sort of behavior. This means it’s on you to ensure that you surround yourself with the right kind of people. You don’t always need the smartest or most talented team. You just need a team that’s willing to move and move fast.
