Strive for Incremental Progress

Saying “I am perfectionist” might sound good, but it is not helpful for Entrepreneurs.

Entrepreneurs are generally impatient. They need to see the fruits of their innovation right away. If they wait to perfect it, they might 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, incremental progress on established goals rather than perfection at a point in time. Sustained progress, even in small measures, 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.

Slow But Sustained Incremental Progress

Entrepreneurs like to think big! Most of them left corporate jobs as they were stifled by the constraints of bureaucracy. Nothing is wrong with that.

Developing a plan to achieve those big dreams and putting it into action is a requirement for Entrepreneurial success.

Some Entrepreneurs might want immediate success. This is unrealistic. Having sustained incremental progress towards your Mission and goals is a more realistic path to success than hoping for overnight results.

While overnight success stories happen from time to time, the odds are very high against it. Entrepreneurs need to focus on making incremental, but sustained, progress in achieving realistic milestones. Celebrate those moments of success!

Consistent effort and making incremental progress on a realistic timeline might be slower that one wants, but that is ultimately what gets you to your goal.
