Done is better than perfect

Lao Tzu said, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” How many miles we'll go is yet to be determined but without taking the first step, we'll never know!

A couple of years ago, I had an idea - to create a program for interior designers that teaches them to do their own PR without spending bunches of time and money. And a way to help them enough to keep going and stay accountable. Everyone I talked with loved the idea and there definitely is a big need.

But then...

Life happened. I got really busy with client work while taking care of my three boys. And then, my husband opened a restaurant. He needed help because, yeah, restaurant!! 

My idea kept popping up and I kept color-coding my calendar to see where I could fit it in, but honestly, I had no energy left to start anything new.  As a multi-passionate person, I am always intrigued by a million different things, and as a recovering perfectionist, my goals can be a bit unrealistic.

(I can hear you chuckle, if you know me...!)

I finally decided to just get started without having it all figured out and perfect. Which is exactly what I will be asking my customers to do when it comes to doing their own PR! We can help each other along the way to get better at putting ourselves out there even if it makes us cringe a little, or a lot.

(I'm already planning the PR Mindset Mastery training...)

Done is better than perfect. I have chosen to embrace that mindset and take the first step on this new journey. I am excited to see where it goes and hope that you'll follow along, cheer me on and maybe even join me!
