💡 🤔 Small Things and Great
“He that lets the small things bind him leaves the great undone behind him.”
Let's talk about perfectionism and its impact on another P - Productivity.
🔎 Personally I've found that the big downside to perfectionism is the rumination over small details, or spreading myself too thinly to try and attempt "everything".
- Whilst attention to detail is very important and a superpower in the right scenarios, it’s also a BIG distraction in others.
- If you want big results, smart prioritisation and consistent laser focus beats the scattergun approach!
✅ Knowing “when to move on” and when “good is good enough” are instincts that every entrepreneur, CXO, and business leader must develop if they wish to be effective. It's essential to untangle yourself from the weeds and those activities that, in the big scheme of things, won’t *really* make much of a difference.
⤵ In the meantime, the actions that will really move the needle for you suffer!
😲 I’ve heard of very successful founders literally throwing out to-do lists when they get too long (oh, the horror!!!), but the thing that I’m focusing on more than ever right now is consistently focusing on the big things first.
❓What are the things to focus on so that if these few things were kept on course, everything else by default would be o.k. In your world?
❓What are the things to work on so that if you did nothing else, your life, your career, and your business, would grow and thrive?
📈 Big questions, big impact!
💪 Place your energy and activity where you can get the best return on investment. High value items come first!
