It’s a big day for me! If you are reading this on Monday, today is the release of the first companion book to Networking in the 21st Century. It’s focused on young professionals and I’m giving it away for free for the first three days (see below). I started writing it in the beginning of February after hearing that people were looking for actionable content that was pertinent to their specific situation. (I’m also working on one for employees of large organizations and solopreneurs). I even impressed myself with how fast I got it out. I found there was a trick to producing it quickly:
It’s not perfect.I mean, it’s very good; but I know that if I wanted I could have polished it over and over for weeks and weeks. Like I wrote last month, there are always more tweaks to be made. But in the end, the most powerful thing to do is put it out. Right now, my mantra is “done is the new perfect”. Whether it’s a new book, article, or other content, my goal is to get it very, very good… then release it into the world. To chase perfectionism is just another way to stay “afraid”. If it falls down on its face, so be it. At least it’s out there. And it might just rock.Instead of thinking perfect, what can you focus on this week so that it gets to “done”?
Have a RockStar Week!
