daily inspiration: make big mistakes!

Posted on: August 22, 2011

Do you dwell in inaction, afraid of making mistakes or “not doing it right?” Waiting to have all the right answers before you move forward? Want to see what others do first, and then make your move?

I have news for you: if this is you, you’re missing out. A client of mine today was telling me about attending a networking event last week where he didn’t make any contacts to find potential clients, and felt like it had been a waste of time. I informed him that the opposite was true: it was a success, because he took action. He actually went out and tried something! He got practice at networking, and the next time it’ll be easier.

The biggest way to hold yourself back is simply by not trying. So do yourself a favor: take imperfect action.

Action: Today, make a big mistake. Or, at least risk it. And reward yourself for doing something new.
