Stop Trying to be Perfect

Nike made billions of dollars off an advertising campaign built around Michael Jordan, inarguably (in my opinion) the greatest basketball player who ever lived.

You may remember it.

“Just Do It.”

There’s a deeper lesson in those three words.

You always move forward by taking action, even if the action is imperfect.

Actually … especially if the action is imperfect.

Just do something … one thing … and don’t try to be perfect.

You’ve probably heard me say this before, but it bears repeating: Perfection is the enemy of progress.

Action causes motivation and momentum, not the other way around.

Stop waiting for the perfect time. The best time to start is always right now.

Stop delaying until you find the perfect workout. A few squats and push-ups will do the trick for today.

Stop worrying about what someone else will think.

So if you’re stuck or struggling to stay on track (or get on track), the best advice I can give you is to take one action … no matter how small … and repeat it every day.

You’ll be amazed by the momentum and feeling of accomplishment this will create.
