I did it! I completed my first triathlon in over four years!
Not only did I complete it but I managed to do it in similar times to fours years ago when I was much fitter.
It wasn’t fast and it certainly wasn’t pretty (everybody’s bum looks big in a wetsuit!) but a large proportion of the entrants were DNF (did not finish) and others were DNS (did not start).
And it’s the same in business. Too many people miss opportunities because they never get started.
I’m a great supporter of Bryony Thomas’ principle of overcoming perfectionism by releasing things which are “functional but not too embarrassing” then coming back and improving them at a later date. I write my books quickly to capture my thoughts, and then edit slowly to make sure that my readers will be able to follow those thoughts.
I also use a business coach (as well as being a coach myself) because, although we often know what to do, we never get around to it without somebody to hold us accountable.
So this week why don’t you JFDI (Just F Do It) and perhaps even join one of our September cohorts to help you to do it faster?
