I had been hesitant to start this blog because I knew that I would need a good amount of time to conduct research to create really insightful posts like those on Business of Fashion or this great blog. Recently, I had some free time and took a refresher course in Advanced Social Media Marketing at NYU (highly recommended!). For a class project, I chose to give my blog a jump start and I am glad I did. I do have a lot to say and a very unique point of view.
I saw the quote above by Seth Godin today and it reminded me of how easy it can be to fail to act for fear of not being the best. This one really resonates with me because my perfectionism can make it quite traumatic when I start a new thing expecting to be an expert and disappointment ensues. Time and time again I have experienced that is is 100xs better to just do it, be kind to yourself, allow imperfection, embrace failure than to fail to act. Easier said than done but for me, luckily, it has gotten much easier with age.
