OK, so in the previous post I said “don’t wait for perfection” but, how much imperfection is right? Where do we draw the line? How do we know when to take the plunge?
The easy answer is “it depends …” Yes, every project is different and some will require a greater degree of “proximity to perfection” whereas others can launch with a larger portion of imperfection or uncertainty.
The answer I prefer, and use as a rule of thumb is: when you feel that you’re spinning wheels; when you’ve spent time on something and at the end of the day you feel that you haven’t advanced an inch; that’s when it’s time to take it to the next level. Launch it, move into the next phase, test it, whatever you’ve decided is the next stage, do it.
Scary? You bet! The next stage is usually scary but you’ll never advance, you’ll never go anywhere unless you take that plunge.
