Overcoming Perfectionism for Business

image

Take a step. Do something that you want to do, even if you are not exactly sure where it will lead you. 

You have heard the phrase  “Ready, Fire, Aim,” but there an adaptation of that quote by Thomas Peters and Bob Waterman. 

“Ready, Aim, Fire. “

I love this quote. You do not always know exactly what to do or how to do it. You cannot predict what how other people will respond to your ideas. But if you have an idea, you should go for it.

It might be an idea for your blog, or a business idea you have. If you try something, then you will see how people react to it. You can always tweak it later. 

You can use the information you gather from the feedback that you get. Then you can adapt based on that feedback. 

If you wait until you think it is perfect, before trying something then you may never go for it.

The only way to know what things will work is to try something and then try something else. 

Perfectionism is the desire to do things perfectly and the fear of not being perfect. But no one is perfect and the world is unpredictable. 

Your journey to discover your possibilities will have failures and successes. You might be surprised how well an idea you have will work. If something does not work quite the way you expected then ask people for their opinions. 

If you are not sure what your target audience is then you will discover this along the way. If you do have an idea who your target audience is, then you can try to see things from their point of view.

Put yourself in their shoes and always think of the people who will be experiencing you. Think of what those people need and what their values are. 

The emotions of people are important when you think of business or blog ideas.

Entrepreneurs are pioneers of their own unique ideas. Your frontier is in front of you and all around you. 

You can give people something that will inspire and challenge them.

You discover what you can do as you go along. You have to take one step at a time. Do not be afraid to try something that you think might be a good idea. 

Ready, Fire, Aim. It can work. You can evaluate the feedback and connect with people in an honest way. 

People respond to others who seem human like they are. You do not have to pretend to be perfect. It just makes you look pretentious and above them. People like to do business with people that are real like they are.

abuse, life, love, lovers, poetry

Lovers

Some people EXPECT,

they feel entitled to what they want

Their lovers are dolls,

Their friends are their puppets

Other people can love and

drink in your fullness,

without even emptying your glass

They pour you good wine,

and cherish the time

that they are given by you

from your heart

Mark my words my sweet darling

beware of the few

who appear to be what they are not

For they will pour you fine wine

while they drink you half blind

and you won’t miss your soul

till it’s gone

They sing a sweet song

to lure you along

and then drag you until you’re destroyed

The ones who say one thing

and then do some other thing

are the ones that you have to avoid

So keep your eyes open

and never forget what you’re worth

dear child

because you are unique

Watch what they do

and find one that’s true

to the face that they put on

for you

Givers, Takers, and Blood Suckers

Some people are givers 

They try to contribute the greater good. They think is a “we” and “our” sort of way and want to be a positive force in the world. They do not injure others on purpose or take what is not theirs. If you fall in front of them, they will try to pick you up off the floor.

Some people are takers

They want what they want. The are “me” and “mine” sort of thinkers. They take what you offer and take too much. They eat the whole entire pizza and do not save a slice for anyone else.

Then you have to go and make another pizza and try to make sure the others get some. If you fall, they will walk over top of you, while the are licking the pizza sauce off their fingers.

Some people are blood suckers and suck the life force directly out of you !

 This goes beyond just eating the pizza you made to be shared by everyone. They want the recipe and life force that you used to make the pizza.

They want to suck the life force out of you in order to use it for themselves. They do not care about you needing your ability to make pizza. They do not care if you eat or anyone else eats. They only care if they eat.

They do not care of they destroy you in the process.  They deliberately cause you to fall and then move on to the next victim.
