I am such a believer that in business you just need to get things done. With many of our students inertia is what is holding them back from making a cracking business thrive in their local area.
I take lots of inspiration from other business people and the other day an email landed in my inbox that I think will help you all budge from that inertia that is holding you back.
Here is it…..
Have you seen Whiplash (the movie) yet?
It’s a fantastic movie, especially if you’re into jazz.
As a guitarist for over 10 years, I loved it.
Got mah heart pumpin’ and mah foot tappin’.
There’s an interesting scene in the movie where Fletcher, an angry professor of music says:
“There are no two words in the English language more harmful than ‘good job’.”
Fletcher wants to make his students great.
He doesn’t want them to be good enough.
He wants them to be world class.
But he thinks that if he tells them that they’re good enough, they’ll stop working.
I’m not sure if a teaching strategy like this would actually work.
But when it comes to building your business, studying marketing and making money…
…you know what’s true here?
One of the WORST things you can do is try and be perfect.
If you want to make money, STOP trying to be perfect.
Money is attracted to speed.
If you ain’t moving… then you ain’t making money.
Conversely, if you’re moving fast and breaking stuff, you’ll make money – even if you make a few mistakes along the way.
Whether you’re writing copy, doing sales calls, hiring a developer or anything else… GIVE UP the idea of perfection and be ok with GOOD ENOUGH.
“Good enough and done” is better than “perfect but not done”.
Now go break some stuff.
