When our standards are too high, we can miss out on good opportunities. Perfection is the enemy of good.
Your business needs to evolve so start somewhere and improve on it rather than trying to make something perfect straight away. As the saying goes, it’s easier to edit a bad page than an empty one.
So, how can you improve your current situation through AI and Automation?
The world is accelerating, if you don’t change you will be left behind
We live in an age of instant gratification and constant distractions. You can’t afford to wait for perfection anymore, especially if it means never getting started or putting off an important task. You need to get started and then iterate based on feedback from your users and the market. If something isn’t working, it’s okay – make changes! It’s better to be able to adapt than have something perfect but not work at all because no one uses it because it isn’t flexible enough.
What not to do
Don’t wait for perfection, it’s the enemy of good: start somewhere and improve on it.
Don’t wait for the perfect solution: iterate until you find something that works better, then iterate again.
Don’t wait for the perfect time: do it now while you have momentum and energy, then set some time aside to reflect on what went well or could be improved upon when your head is clear from being in action mode all day long (or night).
Don’t wait for the perfect team: do it yourself! You do not need a big budget or huge resources to get started; in fact, if you’re anything like most other people who are reading this article right now (and me), your biggest hurdle will likely be how much time you spend waiting instead of actually working towards our goals – so don’t waste any more of yours!
Don’t wait for the perfect idea either: just start with one thing at a time without worrying about whether or not there’s another better way out there (because chances are there isn’t).
Where do you start?
- Start with what you know.
- Start with what you have.
- Start with what you can do now, today, this week and next month.
- Only start on things that are important and urgent (this is important).
- Don’t waste time on things that are not urgent or important because they will only end up becoming more stressful than necessary over time if left undone. Nobody wants a stress-filled day wasted just thinking about how busy you could’ve been.
- Getting the first line of something written is better than not starting. Don’t aim for perfect, it is the enemy of good.
How can AI help you?
AI can help you to:
- Automate repetitive tasks. AI is a great way to automate the process of finding and executing on small opportunities that would take too long for a human to do alone. It’s especially useful when combined with predictive analytics, which uses historical data to identify patterns and make predictions about what will happen in the future. For example, if an employee performs well at work but has a tendency to skip meetings, an AI system could automatically remind them of upcoming meetings via email or text message so they don’t forget about them.
- Identify patterns in data sets. AI can also be used as a learning tool that helps find patterns within large amounts of unstructured information like emails or documents by grouping similar items together based on their content (like all emails relating to sales). This makes it easier for organizations to understand exactly how many resources are needed at any given time so they can plan accordingly without waiting until something goes wrong before reacting appropriately—which is usually too late! AI also allows you more control over where those resources go by making better decisions faster than humans could ever hope too
How can automation help you?
Automation is a way to help you get work done faster and more efficiently. It is not a replacement for human intelligence, so if you try to use automation as a substitute for thinking, you’ll be disappointed in the results.
Automation can also help you improve your current processes—by letting computers do some of the grunt work involved in completing your tasks, including mundane and repetitive tasks that may slow down other employees whose time could be better spent elsewhere. Automated processes can save time by reducing the number of steps needed to complete some tasks or by eliminating unnecessary steps altogether. The result? Faster completion times and reduced costs overall!
Perfection is the enemy of good. While striving for perfection is a natural tendency for many, it often leads to overthinking and inaction. Take baby steps to improve and remember that it’s okay to make mistakes, as long as you learn from them. Just get started! And remember;
- Start today, make an improvement and then iterate to the next level.
- Don’t wait for perfection, it is the enemy of good.
- Don’t be afraid to try something new.
- Don’t be afraid to fail: it’s OK if you do, just learn from it and move forward.
- Ask for help when you need it – don’t be afraid or embarrassed!
