My former perfectionist-self would not approve but lately my motto has been this; do it messy, scrappy and imperfect! Do all the things, do them now and totally wrong if needed, just TAKE. ACTION!
This new “motto” is the total opposite of what I used to pride myself in. In the past I would take months (and in certain occasions, years!) to take on a new project, launch a new offer or share my work because… “it wasn’t perfect.” If you’ve ever held yourself back because you were “getting ready to get ready” then I know you can relate.
TAKE ACTION: DO IT MESSY, SCRAPPY & IMPERFECT!
My most recent “messy and imperfect” action came after we closed enrollment for DIY Website Program. A lot of the people that didn’t join the DIY Program let me know that they were struggling with social media instead! And they felt that if they didn’t get their social media presence (in particular, Instagram) up and running, how were they going to be ready to launch a website?
So based on their feedback, and within three days, I put together the plans for a 2-Day Live Workshop: Instagram + Canva for beginners! We launched it on the third day and within a couple of days had over 50 people register for the workshop.
In the past this is something that would have taken me MONTHS to brainstorm, put together, create and actually put something together. The simple fact that I’m sharing how NOT perfect the process was, makes me feel proud! I’m still putting together the final touches for the workshop material and I know things won’t be perfect but there is one thing I’m certain of…
I KNOW the material and content I’ll be sharing during the workshop will help at least ONE person step up their game on Instagram, and to me, that’s a huge win in my book! Watch today’s Matcha Monday replay to hear more details about my messy, scrappy and imperfect action! I’d love to know, what’s ONE messy, scrappy and imperfect action you can take today!?
