Done is the new perfect

Okay, this thought has been ringing in my head:

Take massive imperfect action.

This idea didn’t come from me… I picked it up from my buddy and fellow investor Tom Krol. 

The thing is—it makes so much sense and is so full of truth.

I see this all the time, especially with my coaching students… they think they have to have every single thing figured out, all questions answered, T’s crossed and I’s dotted, answers to all the ‘what ifs’… before they actually do anything that might bring them a deal.

So what happens?

A whole lot of NOTHING.

Because there’s no way anyone knows it all anyway. Overthinking crushes you.

I call that Analysis Paralysis

Not taking action because you’re unsure… or fearful about the risk… or think you need one more course… all of those are just excuses. :-/

It’s time to stop getting sucked into a pit of excuses. 

Take massive imperfect action…

If you’re in this to dabble—don’t waste your time. If you just want to see if this actually works—get out now before you waste a bunch of money. This is not a hobby, it’s a business. Treat it like one or walk away.

BTW — not having any money for marketing is yet another lame excuse. You can send emails, that’s free. Text messages. Voicemails using SlyDial. Get other wholesalers old dead leads and follow up with them. Make offers on the MLS.

Heck, for just a few bucks, you can handwrite 20 yellow letters a day and mail ‘em out.

No excuses, folks…

Take massive imperfect action.

Know this: It’s okay to make mistakes. (That’s where the imperfect part comes in.) 

Look, I know what I’m talking about because when I started out, I did NOT take massive action. I was too scared. And I wasted a lot of time…

It doesn’t have to be that way for you.

Make 5 offers a day. That is massive action. Just do something.

Massive imperfect action is the secret to your success.
