EPISODE 2 - PERFECTION IS THE ENEMY OF DONE
*Explicit! A teeny bit of adult language in this episode.*
Are you a perfectionist? A procrastinator? On day 36 of entrepreneurship, we explore the dangers of perfectionism, the woes of chronic procrastination and inspiration to just get shit done.
*Perfection - Perfect is not relatable, but we still strive for it - to be the smartest, most authoritative, polished, complete, balanced, successful. (I could go on...) We can overtweak, overedit and overanalyze everything, which keeps us from doing anything. Stop procrastinating for perfection - get one imperfect thing out into the world and you'll learn, grow and be more successful.
*Timing. There's never a perfect time to change. It hurts (ie: growing pains) and can lead to crying in public, throwing your phone in a Target parking lot or sitting in a dark room for days. Don't wait for the "perfect" time.
*Mourn Closed Chapters. We cried like babies for days when we quit our jobs. Change IS hard. Don't expect to "get over it" right away. Give yourself some time to recover. Start a journal (or, let's say, a podcast) to track how you're feeling, what you're learning and how much you're growing ('cause you will!).
*Your Person Suit - So much in life keeps us small, in-check, tame and under control. It feels like putting on a "person suit." Today, I am professional person! Think about those times you've felt like you - really you. Get more of that in your life and you'll stop worrying about perfection.
