Hi! I’m Lisa Cutler and welcome to this Monday Motivator session on “Just getting things done”.
Sometimes, we just need to take action and get things done. Are you one of these people that can wait ’till all of your ducks are in line before you go ahead and take the action that you need to?
For example, if you are building a website, are you waiting until every page is absolutely perfect and all of the copy is written before you get your website up there. Or if you are submitting a report, are you waiting to get every single piece of information exactly correct and have it all laid out in perfect and that’s holding you back and that’s stopping you from getting it done, from completing it.
Sometimes, you just have to go ahead and do it. It might not be perfect, but waiting for perfection can sometimes stop you in your tracks. So get that website up and running and start adding the pages in afterwards or get that report submitted. You can always make a revision later.
If there are things that you need to do and you know that you could submit them now, rather than wait for perfection, go ahead and submit them. Give yourself a time limit perhaps, say – “right I’m gonna spend another 3 hours on this and then its done”.
But you know those things that need to be submitted. You know when you are waiting too much for that perfection – and that’s holding you back.
So if there is something that needs submitting or completing or finishing or just doing as it is – then get it done and get it submitted and finished now!
