The way to get started is to quit talking and start doing. —Walt Disney
On Today’s Episode:
- I discuss with Carla why productive beats perfect
- Sometimes the effort to be perfect slows down speed-to-market
- Waiting for perfection equals a decision not to lead in a crisis
- The importance of coupling information with transparency
- Communication is key during a crisis
The Southwest Michigan First (SMF) team is generally speaking anti good enough, and in regular business, “good is the enemy of great” as Jim Collins so famously stated. But in times of crisis, choosing to wait for perfection is the same as deciding not to lead. The moment will pass you by and so will your thought leadership. Tune in now to hear more about choosing to be productive rather than perfect in these times.
This is an unprecedented time in our country’s history, and the SMF team is here for you. Our entire staff is getting trained in various programming and solutions; if you need help or a consultation, please reach out to any one of us. If you have any questions, comments or ideas, please drop me a line, email me directly via email@example.com or tweet me @ronkitchens. We are all in this together.
Question: When have you waited too long to pull the proverbial trigger on a launch and what did it cost you? How did you recover?
