Most people have good intentions.
But good intentions aren’t enough. Good intentions don’t create value. Accomplishment—getting things done—creates value. Results matter.
It’s safe to say that we all have more potential than we demonstrate. But we let too many things interfere with our achievement. Perfectionism, thinking we have to know more, and not being sure if the next step is the right one often keep us from taking the action necessary.
But the truth is, imperfect action beats perfect inaction every single time.
So anything you can do to get you moving in the right direction and making progress on achieving your objectives is worthwhile—even less than perfect actions.
