Today I talk about the need to Take Imperfect Action and creating progress. I have found that there is no perfect time to start my marketing and make sales calls. Just as I have learned that there is no perfect time to start making my videos and blogging for my business. Simply stated, I have yet to find a perfect time to do just about anything for my business.
Here’s the way I look at it and work around my imperfections. Somewhere, somehow I have come to realize that the best way is to dive right in and just do it. The same applies to me making videos and creating marketing campaigns, etc. None of my videos are perfect and there is always something I would like to go back and change or do differently. I Take Imperfect Action now and make progress, that’s the whole idea.
But if I waited for perfection, I would never get anything done and none of my videos would ever be published. I have to Take imperfect Action now to make some traction and that means just doing the work. The same applies to you and your business. Don’t wait, don’t hesitate and don’t make excuses.
Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking. William Butler Yeats
When I read that quote, I understand that “iron” represents opportunities and what is meant by it. In other words, do not wait for opportunities to happen, create your own opportunities. You create your opportunities by repeatedly striking that “iron” over and over again until it gets hot.
Take Imperfect Action To Make Some Traction
What is your iron? Is it your marketing and sales? Maybe it is picking up your smart-phone and creating a video? Finally, what are you hesitating and waiting for?
