Taking Imperfect Action is Better Than Taking No Action At All


There have been many times in my life that I have operated from the belief that no matter what it was I wanted to do or put out into the world, it had to be perfect before I could ever share it.  I wasn’t going to launch my website, write any articles or hold a teleseminar until I was already well established in my field.  I would sit and fantasize about the “someday” when I could do what I loved, and what things would look like when… But then I had that big “ah-ha” moment.  My perfectionism was paralyzing me from living my calling and my dream and I had to ask myself that pressing question, “If not now, when?”



I knew that if I waited for whatever it was I was working on to be perfect then I would never actually complete it.  I had to get out of my own way and just do it.  You see, perfection is a word that goes against the action of implementation and allows us to procrastinate instead of allowing ourselves to be in motion and be part of the momentum of life living itself.  And perfectionism has a payoff.  It means I never have to put myself out there for fear of judgment from others or even from fear of success. 


To be honest, perfection isn’t even a word that should be in our vocabulary. It implies the unachievable.  There is a certain kind of tension between the opposites when it comes to this word because nothing will ever be perfect and yet everything is perfect just the way it is. The ideal way is accepting and appreciating things exactly as they are.


The beauty in taking imperfect action is it allows us to be on the journey of becoming instead of seeing a destination point that is far from our reach today. To apply imperfect action immediately brings us one step closer to that destination by just being and doing.
