Business and work Mindsets

Just start something

How often do you find yourself saying you’ll start something when the conditions are perfect or when you have perfected some or other detail?

Just start something. How often do you not begin something or release something because you are waiting for perfection to materialise? I do that far too often and it is the reason why I have so many projects that barely had the time to sniff oxygen before I packed them away deep in my “I had a cool idea for something” drawer.

Seth Godin published a great post the other day about this sort of thing:

Waiting for the thing that cannot be improved (and cannot be criticized) keeps us from beginning.

Merely begin.

Yesterday’s post titled “The slippery slope” touches on a similar theme although I don’t think I quite understand what he is saying (even though I have a feeling I agree with him):
