Episode #8 – Strive for Imperfection

Posted by: Tim O'Brien

Let me be blunt. Striving for perfection is dumb. In many cases it can even be destructive. Embracing imperfection is way better when it comes to both the growth of your business and your personal brand. Of course, we want to hold ourselves to a high standard, but this does not mean that the standard should be perfection.

In this episode you will learn why LinkedIn founder, Reid Hoffman thinks pursuing perfection is a waste of time as well as what NBA Hall of Fame legend Julies “Dr. J.” Erving think your standard should be.

•   Why halfway done is better than all the way perfect
•   The critical role imperfection plays in building a great personal brand
