WHAT “IF” BY RUDYARD KIPLING CAN TEACH US ABOUT ANALYSIS PARALYSIS, PERFECTIONISM PARALYSIS AND THE “DONE IS BETTER THAN PERFECT” CONCEPT.

Two of the biggest enemies of success: Analysis Paralysis and Perfectionism Paralysis. We have so much negative talk and artificial roadblocks in our heads that keeps us from starting or finishing something: a business, that website, our book, that song, that album, the company app. We end up endlessly tweaking - never finishing. How do we get around that? Perhaps the concept of "done is better than perfect" can help with that - but when is that appropriate and when is it not? Do we sacrifice excellence for productivity? Do we trade off the time it takes to master a craft for the sake of churning out projects? Come chat with us about it here and let us know what you think! We're tying our thoughts into the famous poem "If" by Rudyard Kipling and another concept around the French word "Bricolage" - plus we have two book recommendations for you from Jon Acuff. From this, we've extracted 3 tips for you: 

  1. Set a firm deadline
  2. Be comfortable with flaws
  3. Remember every master was once a beginner
