Don't Aim for Perfection!

I like Mike Litman a lot. He is one motivational guy I read.
His take on things is JUST GET STARTED!!
Don't AIM for perfection--you will fail. START first, then improve! If you Fail to start, you can NEVER improve! Mike says, "You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.You can accomplish so much more than you are right now.
Give 1% more action and energy to what you’re doing."

I like this a lot.
WHY? gives me hope. I know that sounds weird, but I got the same sort of advice from "". Her advice is similar..."Good enough is great". Her idea of just doing something for 15 minutes is WONDERFUL! Why? It GETS YOU STARTED!! She helped me get organized by simply using a calendar. I was forever forgetting appointments, (and did last week because I hadn't looked at my calendar!). SIMPLE great advice.
Do something Get started. It doesn't have to be perfect. Aim to get started, not complete it.

GET READY, SET....START!!! Let me know what it is!



Good Advice. I always have the idea that if I can't do it big, then I don't do it at all. SO, I'm taking your challenge!

procrastinating is SO easy.. no matter what it is that you are doing, or NOT doing. I do that VERY well.
Your advise is spot on!
