Do you sometimes find yourself going through the motions in your life?Â At the end of the day you feel exhausted. You take a seat on your sofa. But when you review how you spent your time that particular day, your answer might disappoint you.
Most of us “feel” busy even if a large portion of our time and and energy is spent preparing, researching, discovering how best to proceed toward our goal. Â It’s kind of like watching people exercise on television, then feeling tired as though you exercised yourself. This cannot be the way to proceed if your intention is to move things along in your process.Â And so yesterday the abstraction of “imperfect action” crystallized for me.
I spent 1 hour and 45 minutes listening to a young wisdom teacher named Max Simon, courtesy of Valerie Young.Â Max was formerly the head of product development for Deepak Chopra. Max ‘s business goal is to empower 100,000 entrepreneurs — like you and me — to earn 6 figures in one year.
I am not going to go into what that means for his bottom line ( imperfect projection: count $197 per month to belong to his membership site times 500 people = $1,182,000). Â When I was young, my mother used to tell me NOT to count other people’s money.Â So moving along with my original thought , justÂ think what this could mean to your bottom line if you understood and could implement the principles Max suggests about translating what inspires you in a way that Â could help others.
His prospective market is people like me and Â you.Â You know, boomers who will not be retiring and sitting in Florida or Bahia (my choice) Â 6 months out of the year. No we will be working a little longer in our lives. AndÂ I am okay with this. Like you, I am seeking to create a business that not only serves the world but generates wealth and abundance for me and my family. But getting to this point has proven tricky for me.
What I want to share however is my takeaway from viewing his webinar:Â “Imperfect action is the key to success.” Â In other words, there is no point in waiting until we get it 1000 % perfect because perfection is an impossibility.
I am guilty of lingering. Â Are you? And what I want to ask is, does wanting to make something perfect slow you down from reaching your goals?Â How do you work beyond being stuck.
