Today’s video is about taking massive imperfect action – not waiting until something is perfect to release it / launch it / provide it… but getting it out into the world so you can make an impact in more peoples’ lives.
If you prefer to read it… see below.
Massive Imperfect Action.
That is the advice from a coach of mine, Grace Lever, where she talks about don’t wait to release something out there to the world or to the clients that you can have an impact on and wait till it’s perfect to do it.
Because if you’re going to wait till something’s perfect, it might never happen.
Because no one, maybe excluding you, but no one on this planet is perfect.
So one of the things that I’ve always wanted to do was to run a course where all the stuff that I teach around value and help Advisers with, rather than doing it one-on-one, I’ve always wanted to do it in a group online course live, with live training as opposed to a video or a pre-recorded course.
Anyway, I’m starting it today.
It’s now 10:47am.
I’m starting it at 12:00pm today.
Is it all ready?
Is it perfect?
Far from it.
But I’ve let my clients or the ones that have signed up for it know that this is a pilot program, and I’m going to be testing it along the way.
Do I have all the content and the IP and the knowledge in my head?
Absolutely, I do.
Have I delivered sessions like this before?
Hundreds and hundreds of times.
But have I ever put it together and packaged it up in a program like this?
But I’m launching it, and what I’m doing is as I go, I’m going to get their feedback so they know it’s a pilot.
I’m going to test things.
I’m going to ask for their input.
Does this work?
Does that work?
How does this make you feel?
What do you want more of?
What do you want less of?
It is something that is totally out of my comfort zone, and I’m excited and nervous, if I’m going to be honest, because I haven’t done it before.
But I know that it means that I’m expanding my horizons, getting out of my comfort zone.
Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway, one of my favorite books ever, but I’m doing it.
It is not perfect, but I’m taking action.
What’s the worst thing that can happen?
It doesn’t work, and I don’t ever release a fully paid normal version out to the public again.
That’s not a bad, worst possible case, hey?
So going back to you, what is it that you’re doing or thinking of doing or haven’t done yet because you’re waiting to get it perfect?
Don’t wait to get it perfect.
Get it out there.
Run your own pilot group, your own pilot session.
Test it with a couple of clients as little ‘guinea pigs’ (in a nice way) but get it out there.
You’ve got too much goodness in you to share with others to keep it bottled up inside.
And after all, you are a Valuable Adviser.
