Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly…

I heard Tom Peters (a business author and speaker) make a statement one time that has really stuck with me, “Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly“.

What he meant is that if something is worth doing, Then do it. Take action. Move forward. Get going.

Then, if you don’t do it all that well because you don’t know everything, that’s ok because as you start taking action, you will learn what you need to learn.

By moving forward, you will learn how to do it better.

Most people won’t take action until everything is “perfect” – they want to know everything, they must know exactly what is going to happen, they want to be sure everything will turn out ok. And, because it is in fact impossible for everything to be “perfect”, they never take action.

Think of Abram/Abraham in the Bible, he didn’t know anything about where he was going. He had no clue as to what was going to happen. All he knew was that God had commanded him to go.

And that is what you have to do. Go! Start taking action!

By taking action even when you don’t know everything and even though you don’t know how everything will turn out, you cannot help but end up in the Millionaires For Jesus club.

Also, keep in mind that your future success and security is dependent upon what you are learning, applying, and acting upon right now.

Some of your ventures will be successes and some of them will be failures but all of them are a “win” for you.

Why are they all a win for you? Because in each success and failure, you are going to learn invaluable lessons that will be critical to your future success.

In different words, at some point in the future, you will be looking your successes right in the face and you will realize that without the invaluable lessons of your past experiences – no matter how painful some of them may have been – there is no way you could be enjoying your successes without those lessons.

Now, get to work!
