Use the Law of Compounding to Your Advantage

How do you view success? Do you imagine making a windfall profit? In other words, making millions of pounds in just a few days? It sounds so appealing, but also too good to be true. The truth is, most success happens through the law of compounding. Read more

This is Why You Should Not Be a Perfectionist

Perhaps you have that friend who’s a proper perfectionist. Let’s refer to that friend as Frank. Although Frank produces great work almost every time, there’s something you can notice about him.

Frank stresses over even very small details. Starting a task takes a lot of effort for him. And finishing a task takes him almost forever. He likes to think, but often he thinks far too much. Often, Frank gets worried about things that no one else would be concerned about.

As the famous saying goes…

 

Perfect is the enemy of done.

That’s why Frank takes too long to finish his work. He always finds something he can tweak, and he’ll never stop until he gets the task done “perfectly”. I guess you can see the problem here.

Perfectionism causes this infinite loop: Find a mistake, tweak, re-check, find another “mistake”, tweak, re-check, find yet another “mistake”, and so on. It will never end.

Frank is stuck in that cycle. He has to escape that, otherwise his productivity continues to suffer. And the only way for him to escape it is to realise one important thing.

 

You can never do anything perfectly.

As humans, none of us are perfect. In turn, none of us can do perfect work. What’s important is doing things excellently.

Excellent does not mean perfect.

It means doing things with your best efforts.

Perfectionists like Frank find it quite hard to both start and finish tasks. They get stuck figuring out the “perfect” plan before starting. Also, they get stuck in the tweaking loop until they make the “perfect” product.



But what if Frank focused on excellence instead? Well, he will find it easier to start a task, and he will finish it much faster too. He will not be stressed by overthinking. His productivity will soar.

Same thing goes in business. You don’t have to make the perfect product or the perfect business plan. Just make the best one you can, and improve as you go along.


In Greyhound Racing, this principle applies as well!

Although strategy is important, trying to figure out a “perfect” strategy will just ruin the fun. And because of that, the Two Trap Greyhound System is great to have. The system already gives you the winning strategies, so you can focus on having fun in the races. Not only that, the system ensures that you win consistently!
