"Better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing flawlessly." Robert H. Schuller
How many projects or new initiatives have arrived stillborn because of the brutal constraint of perfectionism?
Perfectionism is often a sign of low self-esteem. I should know. I've suffered from this affliction for many years. Recognizing and overcoming its self-imposed limitations opens up creativity and opportunity.
Instead, aim for the best you can do rather than perfection.
Leaders make decisions quickly because they are mindful of their purpose. They know their North Star and use it regularly to say "No" to off purpose opportunities.
The key is to be in action. There will always be time later to make course corrections and modify your trajectory to adjust the outcome. Expect to make them. Indecision due to over analysis is merely fear—a form of spiritual oppression.
Go boldly and confidently. There is power and inspiration in it.
