“If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.”

Have you ever been guilty of violating this principal? One of the differences between successful companies and those that fail is execution. Successful companies don’t wait for the perfect condition. They act. They don’t pursue perfection; they pursue excellence. Perfection is a myth, and a costly myth to worship, because it can never be obtained. The perfect conditions will never come, and so companies wait. And they wait. “Going to roll that product out next week,” (while their competition has already rolled it out-maybe in not so “perfect” of conditions).

Don’t wait for conditions to be perfect, and don’t try to achieve perfection. They are both figments of your imagination. Strive for excellence, but avoid perfection at all costs, or it will end up costing you dearly.
