Imperfect Action … Always Better Than Perfect Inaction!

“Imperfect Action” is a term I remember hearing back about 9 years ago …

Imperfect Action

It stopped me in my tracks because it sounded odd to me.

It actually sounded careless, reckless and unprofessional.

But, I soon learned why that mindset was *SO* wrong.

(Public education can condition you … more on that on a different day!  LOL)

Let’s get back on task!  See for yourself in today’s video …


Over the last 9 years, my wife Melissa and I have taken this to heart.

1) Take the action.  Now.
2) Be open to making mistakes.
3) And figuring it out along the way!!

If you go all the way back to Napoleon Hill’s “Think And Grow
Rich” classic book, he covers this in his ‘Six Steps That Turn
Desire Into Gold.’

Specifically, Step #4 says, “Carry out a definite plan for carrying
out your desire and begin at once whether you are ready or not!”

By the way, you can download those “Six Steps” right here!


Stay tuned for more tips over the next 21 days that you’ll be
able to use to build YOUR business.

action” to get a desired result … and it worked?

    I think I take “imperfect” action every day, but I’ve never been one to sit on the sidelines and let things just happen. Sometimes that is good for me, sometimes, I make mistakes, but that’s how you learn! 🙂

  2. This is absolutely right. I have practically been frozen you could say in not taking action because I wanted it to be perfect I was just going deeper into a hole.

    Imperfect Action is better then no action.

    This is a great reminder Kevin! And you caught me taking imperfect action. Rather that we take the action instead of fretting if we have it perfect. It takes time to learn but the action is what builds our experience and knowledge and the confidence to reach our goals and dreams. Thanks for sharing!

    I heard a speaker say once that “perfectionism was the lowest possible standard.” That really took me off guard. But then he went on to say that perfectionism was actually beyond our reach, so that if we waited to be perfect to take action, we would end up taking no action. Love the message!
