Leadership Thought Of The Day

“The harder you try to be perfect, the less likely you’ll accomplish your goal.”

Jon Acuff, Finish: Give Yourself the Gift of Done

This thought from Jon Acuff was a game changer for me. I have always thought that goals and the process to achieve goals had to be this perfect, polished process. The idea that perfectionism actually hurts my ability to achieve goals flipped my world upside-down. It made me realize that pursuing my goals will be an ugly, imperfect process. The moment I read his words I felt a huge weight lifted off of my shoulders. I can actually enjoy the imperfect journey? Yes!!

Today I am working on killing the idea that my goals have to be perfect. I don’t know what goals you have in front of you, but I hope that you will embrace the imperfect journey that is necessary to achieve your goals.
