Meaningful Progress Better Than Perfection - by Ravi Patel

 

How often have you heard someone say “I am perfectionist.” It might be good, but it is not helpful for Entrepreneurs.

 

Entrepreneurs are generally impatient. They need to see the fruits of their invention right away. If they wait to perfect it, they get bored and move on to something else. The market will not wait either – getting it to the market first is the name of the game.

 

As Entrepreneurs grow their business, they should be striving for measurable progress on established goals rather than perfection at a point in time. Sustained progress in the right direction is desirable than perfecting some aspect of the product, process or service without overall forward movement.

 

An idea that is ninety percent complete and implemented is better than something that is not put into practice as it waits to be perfected.

 

While perfection might be appropriate for artists and scientists, Entrepreneurs need to be progress driven! Show leadership by demanding progress from your employees instead of perfection.
