Wabi-Sabi

Release yourself from the burden of striving for perfection.

The pursuit of perfection will only lead to paralysis or procrastination. IOW not getting anything done.

Instead, embrace the Japanese art of wabi-sabi, finding beauty in imperfections. This mindset will help you deliver early and often because it doesn’t have to be perfect, just good enough to work.

So, take those ideas, that message or positioning statement, those marketing materials or websites you have sitting on the shelf, and get it into the real world as soon as possible.

Then cherish the learning experience you’ll get from the feedback and data you collect and improve and evolve it to make it better every step of your journey.

Hey everybody it’s your boy, Bobby G from Propr Design. The Japanese have an awesome term for imperfections, the beauty of imperfections. It’s called Wabi-Sabi. And it’s awesome. It refers mainly to aesthetics and as applied to architecture and design of space. But I love to apply it to myself and my mindset for business. And I think it will help you do the same. Why? Well, it’s because we feel an immense amount of pressure to deliver something only once it reaches the state of perfection. And when you think about it that’s an impossible state to accomplish. Right? When we strive for perfection, there really only thing that we can accomplish is procrastination or paralysis. In other words, we’re not getting anything done. And when we’re not getting anything done, we’re not learning we’re not improving, right? So release yourself from the burden of perfection. Embrace imperfection.
Deliver early and often. Meaning do your due diligence. Work hard, be strategic, think make sure what you’re doing is polished, and then deliver, get it out there. Right get it working for you. Learn from it gets insights and data from delivering early and often. There’s no business trying to reach that state of perfection when improvement is just appreciating, and celebrating imperfection. All right. Get it done.
