Stop Aiming For Perfection
business tip from SeedProd founder, John Turner
Building a business isn’t easy. It doesn’t matter whether you are running a small business from your spare room or want to create the next multimillion-dollar global phenomenon – if you’re not prepared, your business won’t succeed. John Turner of SeedProd has this to say about the subject:
“When launching a new business, it’s natural to want everything to go smoothly. But if you want to be triumphant, you must let go of your perfectionist tendencies. While you might think that being a perfectionist will be beneficial to your new endeavor by making you more motivated and pushing you to strive for success, that’s not always the case. In fact, as reported byHarvard Business Review, perfectionists have higher levels of stress, burnout, anxiety, and depression.
Stop aiming for perfection. When starting a new business, you’re bound to experience bumps in the road. If you expect them to happen, you’ll be better prepared. Mistakes don’t make you a failure – they help you learn and become a more successful entrepreneur when you overcome them.”
