Years ago, a friend of ours described a counseling session with an employee thusly:
“The reason I’m a manager and you work for me is because I made a lot more mistakes than you to get here.”
We’ve had experiences with broken links in e-mails, teleseminars where the wrong dial-in pin was given out but not caught until the teleseminar was already live, and other such atrocities.
Too Much Review And Checking Will Slow You To A Grinding Halt, Though.
Here’s a new point of view.
If you’ve never sent a broadcast e-mail with a broken link, you’re spending too much time reviewing and re-reviewing every damn thing, or (in our experience, AND) you don’t e-mail often enough.
If you’ve never offended anyone on social media, you don’t share often enough.
If you’ve never spent money on a home-study course that was only marginally helpful, you don’t invest in yourself often enough.
If you’ve never launched a home study course that was a complete dud sales-wise, not only are you doing nothing to ascertain your audience’s buying preferences, you’re not launching often enough.
If you’ve never had a great-looking and great-sounding client who passed all your tests still turn out to be a Client from Hell, you’re not getting new business often enough.
Time to start failing and get it over with, so you can succeed more.
