BTW, the same holds for Jealousy.

And Bitterness And Anger.

And Revenge.

Let it go.

Perfection is the Enemy of Good … and of Done.

If you’re a recovering perfectionist like me, you may have learned by now that perfection can actually be the enemy of good.

It’s also the enemy of Done … if you’re letting your desire for perfection get in the way of getting something done NOW and continuing to improve it going forward.

The same approach applies to your goals for 2018. Don’t shoot for perfection.

Shoot for DONE and keep strengthening your goals over time.

{{ subscriber.first_name }}, do  you want to make that approach part of your 2018 plan?

If so, why don’t you join me for a free webinar with my colleague, Michael Hyatt, entitled Navigate Your Way to Success in 2018: 5 Blunders That Can Shipwreck Your Goals (And How to Avoid Them).

I’ll be right there with you, taking notes to do what I can to make 2018 the Best Year Ever.

I hope you’ll join me.

Don’t Let This Be Your Fallback Plan in 2018

As you formulate your goals for 2018, don’t let this become your fallback plan.

Go for it. Aim at that Big Hairy Audacious Goal (“BHAG” in the parlance of Jim Collins of Good to Great fame).

What have you got to lose?

While you’re at it, don’t miss out on the free quiz to help you evaluate what you’d like to achieve in 2018 in all areas of your life. It expires on Tuesday.

“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.” ~Michelangelo
