It’s Not About Perfect, It’s About Progress

September 12, 2012

I just returned from one of my most enjoyable roles with the PIPELINE Entrepreneurs organization (By the way, they are accepting applications for a new class – see pipelineentrepreneurs.com).  I work with these high growth business owners to help them communicate their business concept – in plain English – and set and achieve milestones for their business. I encourage them to set goals for their team and themselves that make meaningful progress toward their success.

It seems we sometimes reach a conundrum when we work toward these objectives.  Either we are paralyzed by the size of the task in front of us – and therefore can’t break a big goal into small tasks, OR we get overly focused on the details of the goal – attempting to make it a perfect measurable task to move you closer to your objective.  In either case, I am a proponent of simple progress.  Figure out a way to move in the general direction of your objective and refine your goals along the way.  You just don’t know, unless you get started.  Indeed, it is about progress, not perfect.  Let’s get moving!
