Don’t you wish you could take a crystal ball and see all the challenges that are going to present in your business and how you overcome them?
I’ve certainly had my fair share of challenges to overcome! Through my experience of starting four different businesses, there have been a few key lessons I’ve learnt along the way that I’d love to share with you today to empower you in your business journey!
Lesson One: The 80% Rule
One lesson that has made the biggest difference in my business, is that perfectionism achieves nothing.
It’s better to do things at 80% than nothing at 100%. Read that over again.
It is really hard to not want everything to be perfect in your business but I can tell you that you are the only person who is going to notice that the work you put out is what you consider to be 80% and not 100%.
Think about your social media content, for example, consistency is important and if we all strived to create the perfect aesthetically pleasing and valuing adding reels we would never get anything posted. So remember your work does not need to be perfect!
Aim for 80% and get it out. If time allows you can always come back to your work to update and improve it as you go.
