Strive for Progress, Not Perfection

Who else struggles with publishing a blog post, launching a product or maybe just completing a project because it's not quite perfect yet?

I've had too many clients who are afraid to launch their businesses because they feel it's not perfect. They are comparing their first launch to the big players in their field and are afraid they won't compare. But the thing is, of course you won't compare. This is your starting point. It's better to launch and correct later than to never launch. Think of the learning opportunities you're missing out on and the clients you aren't helping because you keep putting it off.

I've gotten wrapped up in this same issue, sending panicked emails to Danielle- "But my tag line isn't perfect yet! What about this one? Or this one??" Thankfully she sweetly sets me straight and reminds me to strive for progress, not perfection. Perfection is an illusion, and my tagline is fine how it is.

Have you struggled with perfection in your business? I'd love if you would share your story in the comments!
