"Perfection is the enemy of done."
This age-old adage has stuck around since the times of Voltaire, Confucius, and Shakespeare. And it still rings true today, maybe even more now than ever. With unlimited resources and information available right at our fingertips and seemingly endless choices and opportunities to pursue, the desire to create a flawless end product or complete something “perfectly” can be a constant tug.
However, the drive for perfectionism can stall us, prolong our start, or even keep us from beginning altogether! Whether it's a dreaded task, goal, or even fun project you're wanting to do - oftentimes, the hardest part is just getting started.
The trick is to just jump in and start, striking while the iron is hot and you have a sense of urgency and momentum. Understanding that it’s okay (and necessary) to learn and adjust as you go.
Is there something you’re hoping to achieve or do? Start by writing it down and choosing a deadline. Then, just start! Be consistent and practice perseverance, putting good habits in place to support your continued progress.
This is your time to shine! What are you going to JUST START?
