You Need to Be Consistent, Not Perfect
Focus on being consistent in your work over being perfect

I’ve been working out lately, a lot actually. Not just working out, but I’ve revamped my nutrition (notice I didn’t say diet). I also got a coach his name is Mitch, he’s a swell guy who wants to get me ripped like Stephen Amell.
One thing that Mitch talks about is consistency over perfection. I feel like this is something that applies to more than just fitness and nutrition. For instance, blogging.
I know I’ve fallen off the blogging wagon, things have come up. Forgive me. I’m trying to find my cadence of what is an actual sustainable schedule. Once a week was hard and I stopped all together. Being consistent is what is more important than being perfect. Blogging in general is more important than not blogging at all.
Could you imagine if you quit everything you weren’t perfectly perfect at being perfect at? IT WOULD BE EVERYTHING!
This is one of the biggest things I have a hard time getting my clients to understand. Your website copy doesn’t have to be perfect, it needs to be good, compelling, engaging, but not perfect.
I can’t tell you how many website builds have been pushed back because the client has no idea what to put on their website. Sometimes it requires some actual thought, but a lot of times it’s seeking perfection that slows down the process.
You don’t need to be perfect, you just need to be consistent.
On the freelance side it’s important to be consistent in the quality of work you put out. Following up takes some work too and you need to be consistent in that. Doesn’t matter if your follow up message is “yo whats up? Got that thing I need?” As long as you’re following up with your client you will be consistent.
Be consistent, show up. Don’t be perfect, perfection does not exist.
I don’t do comments anymore.
