Get It Perfect or Get It Going?

perfectionist1By now I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’ve been moving the furniture around as far as my blog goes.

I’ve made some changes to the design on more than one occasion and mostly because I want it to have a look and feel that motivates and inspires me to write.

I’m somewhat of a perfectionist and although that’s not a totally bad quality to have, it can keep you from making progress in other areas that need and deserve more of your time and attention.

But the point I want to make with you today is that even though I’ve made many changes to my site over the years… I did not let my desire for perfection keep me from putting it out there in the first place.

Instead of trying to get everything just right before I did anything… I launched the site.

Yeah, I did look for a fairly decent theme to work with at the start and I didn’t know ANYTHING about working with WordPress at the time, but I didn’t let that stop me from getting my presence online.

If you want to make money online, you’ve got to understand the value of something called ‘speed to market’.

I still struggle with this from time to time.

Speed to market simply means that the faster you can produce something for sale in the marketplace, the faster you will be able to make some money from it.

The longer it takes you to get your website, blog, products or whatever out into the marketplace, the harder it is to capture the attention of your target audience because you’ll end up competing with someone else who got there before you.

Make sense?

So don’t let your tendency towards perfection keep you from making your presence known to your target market.

You can always tweak and adjust things along the way.

Kinda like what I’ve been doing with my site lately.

Don’t worry about getting it perfect, just get it going.

What do you think?
