For the past few weeks or so I have been working on a social media training program. I am planning on taking on the social media world and training businesses and individuals on how to use sites like facebook, myspace, craigslist, linkedin and twitter to grow, protect and define their brand.
Now I am not one of those people that strive for perfection all the time, but when I have a passion for something I really would like it to appear perfect. But there in lies the problem. There is no such thing as perfect. I must have spent 40% of my time trying to make my site http://blogtrainingacademy.com perfect. I changed logos 2 times, I changed the CMS (content management system) I am using from Joomla to wordpress, and then I changed site colors from grey and red to black and grey.So you would think that the site that I designed for my new venture was perfect NOPE……. as one of my friends said that most if not all sites are in constant state of beta.
So as I write this post I am asking myself how much time did I waste chasing a dream of perfection while damn near destroying possible.
There is no such thing as PERFECT, perfection does not exists at all. While we spend time trying to achieve perfection that possible opportunity is being passed by. People often say that they missed out on a PERFECT opportunity, but they really missed out on a possible opportunity. Possible is always attainable and perfect is never attainable.
I am resigned to the fact that my first social media class is possible, but will not be perfect. It is possible because of friends and family and my online community of people that encourage me daily.
Thank you to all that have made things possible in my life.
