‘Finishing projects is part of what it means to deliver high quality work.

You can't be high quality if your perfectionism prevents you from finishing.

The longer you delay, the more the quality of the experience degrades’ - James Clear

What’s the point in perfectly executing 60% of a project and never finishing it?

In the end an incomplete but ‘perfect’ project can only be judged by you. It will also only make sense to you.

Suppose there’s an element of learning or doing it for personal satisfaction. You’ll still get annoyed at never finishing.

Aim for completion, not perfectionism. Not saying roll out something that’s rubbish, just something that isn’t ‘perfect’!

‘Plan >Plan >Plan >Execute… or Plan >Execute >Execute >Execute?’

The first option is certainly easier, but is it more beneficial?

For me, it has to be learning by execution! I get bored with planning and the process stops being fun.

The fun and interest lies in the execution. It propels failure, learning, bouncing back, and iteration.

For many, all of this can be achieved in the planning stage. Be conscious of what works for you and run with it!

‘You think failure is the opposite of success, but it's just a part of it’ - Jonas Beetle

You think failure is the opposite of success, but it’s just part of it.

Yes, I just repeated the line. It deserved it.

You know what, read that again!

A twist on the plan and execute method mentioned above:

Success >Failure >Failure >Failure… or Failure >Success >Success >Success?

The Mistake Smart People Make: Being In Motion vs. Taking Action (James Clear)

There is a common mistake that often happens to smart people — in many cases, without you ever realizing it.

The mistake has to do with the difference between being in motion and taking action. They sound similar, but they’re not the same.

Here’s the deal…
