Are you the type of person who always feed on the standards of perfection? Don’t you want to undergo growth and enjoy the experiences within?
In doing business, what keeps your boat sailing is upon pursuing progress over perfection. Through gaining progress while trying to combat all sort of challenges, you also improve, learn and unlearn many things. Always remember that continuous improvement is better than delayed perfection. But, how can we get away with trying to go after perfection if it won’t help us grow holistically as an entrepreneur?
Here are… 𝟓 𝐖𝐚𝐲𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐈𝐦𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐯𝐞 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐥𝐲
1. 𝐒𝐞𝐭 𝐒𝐌𝐀𝐑𝐓 𝐆𝐨𝐚𝐥𝐬
Make sure that your goals are practically SMART which stands more for being Specific, Measurable, Attainable , Relevant and Time Bounded or Based.
2. 𝐀𝐝𝐣𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐄𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬
Don’t think that everything will go as planned; that whatever you expect will come true, because even if you work hard on it, if it’s really not meant to happen, it’ll never work out. Accept early on that you need to lower the stakes and be open to consciously adjusting one’s expectations.
3. 𝐂𝐨𝐥𝐥𝐚𝐛𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐖𝐞𝐥𝐥 𝐖𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐎𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐬
You can’t do things alone and figure out it all by yourself. Don’t be scared to ask other for their opinion, delegate work and work collaboratively with your team.
4. 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐠𝐞 𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐓𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐜𝐞𝐬𝐬
In moving away from perfection at work, you have to deeply know oneself. Give yourself a wider space for improvement which encompasses practicing mindfulness, reciting a mantra, knowing one’s triggers and mind mapping to generate better ideas.
5. 𝐂𝐮𝐭 𝐎𝐮𝐭 𝐍𝐞𝐠𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐈𝐧𝐟𝐥𝐮𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐬
Everyone is prone to adopting bad habits due to influences, but keep in mind that they won’t really help us improve. It’s best to cut them out and just focus more on the good ones that will help us grow and become a better person of our own.
The key here is to become the person who is not afraid to make mistakes, but who is not also comfortable in making one. To genuinely improve by not conforming to the standards of perfection, you need to be aware of yourself and the environment that you’re living in and clearly identify your both needs and wants. #RubenLicera #LiveTheGreatLife #EmpoweredTeamEmpoweredContent
