In my last post, I referred to Will Smith's advice on building a wall, an analogy for accomplishing a huge task looming in front of us. I said take small perfect steps to accomplish your goals.
What do I mean by perfect?
Perfect is somewhat of a loaded word, because it implies that we can do something perfectly. It suggests that if we do something perfectly, if we write that perfect email, or land that perfect job interview, or we get that perfect opportunity, that everything will just work out.
The chances of us do anything perfectly is exactly nil, and even if we could do one thing perfectly, the rest is not going to just work out.
So what am I really saying? I'm saying to do the absolute best you can.
