Podcast featuring Jennifer Bleam
This month, I’m rolling my eyes because my own words are coming back to haunt me. When I impart wisdom into my clients’ lives, it’s very logical, and I’m very detached from my advice. But it’s a little different when CHANGE foists itself on me. This month, as I’m rolling out something new, I’ve been very uncomfortable. And like my clients, I have a million questions.
So with this new program I’m launching, I’ve asked a million questions. Not because I’m unable to execute without answers. But because I want to deliver something GREAT.
The fact I reminding myself is that the goal is not to launch with perfection. In fact, at DattoCon a few weeks back, Mark Rober mentioned that if you launch something the first time and it is great and it works and it solves the problem – that this is a problem. Because it was wonderful from the start, there’s very little need for optimization. Which means that you probably launched too late. After all, it’s the “failures” you learn from. (And, failures are just a learning opportunity.)
There are some things you must learn by jumping into the deep end. Yes, that can feel uncomfortable, especially if you’re committed to executing with greatness and delivering a quality experience and a quality product. That doesn’t mean that everything must be perfect. Perfection is the enemy of great.
