Done is better than perfect

So many small business owners fall into the trap of perfectionism. But we all know what happens when we get too picky — a big fat NOTHING. Perfectionism doesn’t serve us, it works against us. We become our own worst enemy and productivity and efficiency go out the window.

Don’t get me wrong — it’s great to pay attention to detail and to have high standards for yourself and your business. But when it cripples you from doing what you need to do, that’s not healthy. And your business will suffer the consequences.

I have fallen into this trap myself, and I’ve seen the devastating results it can have. I’ve had to work hard at it, but I find that the mindset of “Done is better than perfect” is nearly always accurate.
