Are you someone who gets tripped up thinking every little thing has to be perfect?
Well, hear me now: Done is the new perfect.
What does that mean?
It means that things DON’T have to be perfect before you move forward.
You need to ask yourself where the snags are that slow you down and impede your progress. I see it all the time—investors wasting a ton of time just trying to perfect a postcard or their website… when they could be making offers and closing deals.
Does that sound familiar?
Well, to that I say: Jump… then figure out how to fly as you fall.
Don’t get tripped up by the details… obviously, you want everything you do or put out there to look professional, but don’t be a victim to this trap.
Look, I’m guilty of this too… when I create a new podcast or course – I can all get stuck in this perfection mentality, where if it’s not exactly what you want, you can’t move forward with it.
But as for the most successful people in our industry, I’m telling you, they go by this motto: done is the new perfect. They’re not wasting time on the teeny tiny minutia and editing and re-editing before they release something.
I’m not saying we shouldn’t strive for excellence—I’m saying…
It’s done. It’s good enough. It’s good quality. Get it out the door. Release it. Push send. Publish it. Mail it.
You’ll figure things out as you go…
- You’ll learn along the way.
- You’ll fail forward.
- You’ll get some questions answered as you go along.
See, if you’re worrying about how you’re going to do steps 7 and 8… you’ll never start steps 1 and 2.
Here’s an example: You should be spending just a few minutes analyzing a property to see if it’s a deal you want. Then make the offer. And boom, move on to the next.
I mean, you need to be making 10 offers a day—if you hem and haw about every little detail, you’ll never make offers… no offers means no deals… no deals means no profits. 🙁
It will never be perfect. But it can be close and it can be good enough.
Don’t get stuck… don’t get tripped up.
Stop overthinking, stop overanalyzing—you can always go back to adjust and fix it.
Take bold, massive action.
Done is the new perfect.
