The perfect enemy…

“Don’t allow the perfect to be the enemy of the good.
-Voltaire 

If you are a high achiever and constantly striving for perfection, that’s a beautiful thing… The inherent and consistent driving force is what separates us from the every day Jack & Jill going through the motions of life… 

Work ethic and accountability driven by passion foster a relentless quest for perfection but there is just one problem… 

There is NO perfect. 🤦‍♂️

When we first created the Daily Hustle Podcast I would read the email in an audio book format and then free flow unfiltered thoughts after the reading… Oftentimes I would F up and would either re-read or redo the monologue at the end…

Then one day several months back I tripped over my words while reading and then butchered the freestyle… Yet instead of going back to instantly correct my mistakes like I had for all other hack jobs in the past, I decided to listen to see how bad it actually was…

Ironically, even though I stumbled through several words and even took a few shots at myself through well earned self deprecation, I actually found myself hysterically laughing at my own expense… 

I then figured if I was laughing maybe somebody else could get a chuckle at my blatant imperfections as well so I went ahead and fired it off to my dudes in Tennessee, Matt & Tyler, who format all the Daily Hustle Blogs & Pods across multiple platforms… 

Since that day I have said fuck it and I give myself one shot at the podcast recording then send that shit… Is it perfect? NEVER. Is it good? Well, that’s a subjective opinion but as far as I am concerned, ALWAYS. 

Most importantly it’s authentic, which in my opinion makes it good so long as I don’t let the quest for perfection and the perfect enemy destroy it. 💥
