When Done Is Better Than Perfect

When Done Is Better Than Perfect
I bet you can finish this sentence: “If you can’t do something right…” "Don’t do it at all." Mmm….I strongly disagree. This is one of the most toxic mindsets I see.  Perfectionism likes to parade around as something inspirational and helpful, but if you look behind the curtains it’s all about fear — fear that you might not do it right, fear that it might not look just right, and fear that you just don’t have what it takes.  Perfectionism is just fear in really good shoes. Have you ever stopped to consider how much of your time and energy you spend trying to get something from good enough to perfect — when it probably doesn’t make that much difference in the long run?  What if we adopted this attitude instead?  "Done is Better than perfect.” 'Done' is better because 'done' means you get to move on and have joy in life instead of obsessing over details that won’t matter as time passes. Learn how Done Is Better Than Perfect can help you get organized, be more productive, improve personal goals, and better connect with your family.

When You Want Everything Organized Right Now
Remember that Adam Sandler movie from years ago called “Click?” Where he found a universal remote that could fast forward through all the hard parts of life, so he could skip the messy middle and just get to show up at the end when everything was easy again? It would be so great to get your hands on a remote like that to fast forward through all the work and just have everything be organized right NOW. Unfortunately, I don’t have that remote, or a magic wand, or anything else that can give you these instantaneous results…but I do have a strategy that can help you know what to do in this kind of a moment. It is a little formula I like to call Small + Simple = Success. And here’s a spoiler alert: these little wins create BIG results.    Tools taught in this episode: Success is a formula – it is a series of steps Small + specific = Success   Links:  The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy Get Organized Bootcamp Organize Your Paper Organize your Space ----more---- Are things starting to click for you?
