Demand Progress, Not Perfection

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

Entrepreneurs are generally impatient and 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.

Progress over Perfection

When someone says “I am perfectionist,” it might sound good, but it is not particularly helpful to Entrepreneurs.

Entrepreneurs have a bias for action and 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 key to the competitive game.

In growing their business, Entrepreneurs should be striving for measurable, meaningful progress on established goals rather than perfection at a point in time. Sustained progress in the correct 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 well is much better than something that is not put into practice as it waits to be perfected.

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

Excellence in Moderation

Striving for excellence in everything is a worthy goal.

However, if one becomes too focused on perfection on trivial things or items, the benefits may outweigh the time and resources devoted to achieving excellence.

Entrepreneurs need to be aware that they cannot ask themselves and their organizations to strive for excellence in everything. Focus on a few goals and aim for excellence on those, but de-prioritize lower-level projects and accomplish them well. The resources of your organization should be allocated judiciously on higher priority goals requiring excellence.

It is okay to be excellent on major items, but good on minor ones.
