Stop Waiting for Everything to be Perfect

Take the opportunity today to stop waiting for everything to be perfect.

Are you one of those people that likes to think of themselves as a perfectionist? If you are, has anything you’ve ever done been perfect? I’m going to stick my neck out and guess not. The trouble with perfection is it’s unattainable.



It can be a great excuse for not finishing stuff.

Here’s a suggestion…finish it. Whatever IT is, get it done, stop worrying about the possibility that there might be some errors in it or that some vital component might get omitted. Get it done then get it out there.

You can tinker with it and update it later, you’ll get plenty of feedback I promise you.

Stop worrying that it won’t be perfect.

Now, what excuse can you use for not finishing it?

    Though this is perfect Stu! lol
    There’s always a way no matter but those people finding an excuse for every thing – well sorry for them because they will never finish anything!
    Practice makes perfect! Well that is an inspiration for us to achieve success though it does not mean 100%! Reality check? No one is perfect! Everyone fails but at the end of the day its finishing the race!

  3. Very true Stuart!
    Many times making things perfect keeps us from giving them ‘real’ shape in the real world.
    And that way, things remains ideas in our own minds and never show up.
    Coincidentally, I’d also written a post with somehow similar message.
