Quick Steps To Help You Take Action Now
Need to move ahead and yet find yourself holding back?
Edward W. Smith, motivational speaker, author and TV show host, who specializes in quick tips on how to move your life ahead even faster, offers the following advice.
One of the main reasons we hold back taking action is the desire for perfection. We want all the information, we want every part to be perfect, we want all our questions answered, and so on. Give it up, it isn't going to happen, life isn't like that, you will never have everything you need to make it perfect, so you need to shoot for "good enough" instead of perfect and let it go.
It has been said that one advantage of making a good enough decision now, versus waiting for the perfect decision later, is that it gives you more time to change it, and there is some truth to that.
First, make that decision and implement it based on the best information you have, then, monitor feedback on how the project is going, finally, take corrective action and watch your project succeed.
Remember the two keys things to having a successful project. The first is starting it, which we have covered here, and the other thing is finishing it. So give it your best shot and then let it go and finish it.
