The secret to becoming a successful female entrepreneur...
is to Take Imperfect Action
What do I mean by this?
Do you have projects on your to do list that you dream about but don’t actually do?
Have you ever got completely stuck on a project due to indecisiveness or procrastination?
Do you easily get distracted by shiny object syndrome?
This is because you are trying to get everything perfect – and this quest for perfectionism is getting in your way. It’s either paralysing you into taking no action at all or it’s creating stumbling blocks in your business.
It’s time to throw perfectionism out the window!
Set timers for every step that you need to take to achieve your goals and complete a project. Stick to these time limits. Make fast decisions. Remember that certain details can be revisited and tweaked at a later date. It’s more important to first just get that project out into the world.
Set achievable goals: Break down your projects into small, achievable goals that you can take action on. This will help you avoid feeling overwhelmed and stuck.
Embrace mistakes: Remember that mistakes are a natural part of the learning process. Don't be afraid to make them, and use them as an opportunity to learn and grow.
Prioritize action over planning: While planning is important, it's even more important to take action. Don't get bogged down in analysis paralysis or overthinking things. Just take action!
Get support: Surround yourself with supportive friends, family, mentors, and fellow women in business (through networking groups) who can provide you with feedback, encouragement, and guidance.
Celebrate your wins: Remember to celebrate your successes, no matter how small they may seem. This will help you stay motivated and focused on your goals.
