The More Accurate And Agile You Are, The More Profitable You’ll Be

Hey there, hero!

I was presented with yet another example of a perfectionist client getting in their own way.

Letting that perfection get it the way of progress. Of success. Of shipping.

And when you’re a perfectionist, you don’t want to be told to stop being a perfectionist.

So…how about I appeal to your wallet?

Hope this helps!

  1. This ties in very well with episodes 47 and 48, Ready-Shoot-Aim and MVP. Great advice! I’m detecting a trend here. 🙂

  2. I’ll be honest: This is one of my major challenges. Can’t tell you how many times I feel like I’ve pushed through too fast, and submitted something that wasn’t my best/wasn’t what they were looking for. But then if I work on it longer, not only does it take more time, but it doesn’t seem to make it much better, either. Seems like either I connect with the job, or I don’t. If I do, one or two takes is enough; if I don’t, no number of takes will make up for it.
    If that’s true, then I guess I should just do the two or three, and if I’m not really happy, or don’t feel like I’ve ‘connected’ with it, walk away.

  3. Yes. The more accurate you are: the more engaged, the more specifically supporting the story you’re being asked to tell, and the quicker you can get to that by making bold choices and recognizing when they work – the better. Thank you. Good advice.
