Strive for continuous improvement instead of perfection - Kim Collins
I met with a client this week, and we were reviewing the commitments that she had made during our previous session. On one of her commitments, she sheepishly admitted that she had only kept her commitment about 50% of the time. I congratulated her on her progress, and simply said “Strive for progress, not perfection".
Let me put some context around this comment. Over the years creating projects, I have now become an expert in striving for progress, not perfection. Growth is not automatic - it takes practice. For the past 14 years I have hosted the annual ''Common Ties'' event and in the process I have learned that when we choose to measure ourselves against our progress, then we can actually see how we are getting better.
This year, in spite of many breakdowns, the "Common Ties'' event was a huge success with each speaker discussing all things related to their leadership journey and growth with some excited participants enjoying themselves to their fullest extent. Thank you to those of you who attended. You being there made a huge difference. Look forward to seeing you again next year.
