Perfection is an Anchor
It weighs you down and stops you from moving forward.
When this is perfect I can do this
I can put it onto market
I can make some money or generate leads
Stop those thoughts because they are stopping you from progressing and moving forward
Perfection is the friend that looks like they’re helping but really they’re using you to stay afloat whilst your drowning
Perfection will sink you.
Good is great if the world sees it
Good can be improved upon
But the world will never see perfection
So do the work
But make sure you show it to the world
They say the week start on Monday
But the strong start on Sunday
I fell into the habit of just letting my weeks start at default and just go with the flow, you know see what happens…
Not much really, Apart from responding to events as and when they happen.
The strong start on Sunday, meaning planning your week before it starts and reviewing the previous week to see what progress you did or did not make…
(Although I don’t think that’s what Ye meant)
Garret J White calls this the general’s tent, Planning your battles before you go to war.
War on yourself that is.
Start on Sunday
Review your week
Plan your week
Kill your week
Everyone gets tired, Even your hopes
Doing the work is tiring.
It does not always go to plan…
We may fail and we may fall,
We will definitely experience tiredness and fatigue…
But if we have started the work then no matter how tired we become, We will have made progress…
But if all your doing is sitting around, Hoping for change, Then eventually you are going to give up hope, and you will have made no progress and watched time just pass by…
You’re going to get tired no matter what, So you might as well become tired doing something.
Do you have a time machine?
So that you can go back in time and change shit.. No So why dwell on it in the present.
(Not a direct quote) But a quote from Kevin Harts the decision.
We can’t go back and change the stuff we have done or haven’t.
So all we can do is accept it, Its happened, we can’t change it, but we can adapt to it in the present.
We can move forward and deal with whatever happened, But not if we cannot accept it.
So let’s stop the feeling sorry for ourselves and make some forward progress
Show up and contribute
That’s how we gain traction and progress.
Show up and contribute to your body every day by choosing to exercise and eat healthier (or contribute to developing an unhealthy one it works both ways)
Show up and contribute to your partner, to your business, to your blog…
I had something like 50 views in my first year of blogging, 2nd year 400 the 3rd over 2000 then last year I hadn’t published anything for like 5-6 months on the site, I was publishing elsewhere but I had something like 4000 views…
All from the contribution from the years before and they’ll hopefully continue to grow the more I contribute
It’s like when you was superfit in high school or college,
You could run for days, play sports etc, then go eat a McDonald’s and chug alcohol…
These habits persist on when the training stops and all those years of unhealthy eating add up when you get older.
Whatever you want traction on show up and contribute to it.
