Stop Overthinking and Start Doing
“I’m not good enough.”
“I’m not ready.”
“I don’t have all the skills.”
But what if you just took the plunge? What if you risked things not being “perfect” and put yourself out there?
You might fail, but you’ll learn a lot more than if you had never shown your project to the world.
It’s like I always say- the biggest risk takers are the most interesting.
For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with the entrepreneur Gunnar Lovelace who is passionate about telling people that it’s ok to make mistakes.
Growing up poor with a single mom left Gunnar with a burning desire to create wealth to do good. As a result, he is a five-time serial entrepreneur focused on social impact at scale (people, planet + profit). Gunnar is the founder and CSO of Thrive Market, which offers organic groceries online at wholesale prices nationally. It has raised $200 million and grown to seven million users and 700 employees in three years.
Gunnar shares that part of the reason he is so successful is that he didn’t know everything when he started. He says that you need to get in the driver’s seat instead of overthinking.
Learn how to battle your perfectionism and dive into your dreams in Episode 735.
