Success – It’s not About Perfection

posted in: Your Success Needs | 0

Thank goodness! I am not a perfect person, but I still have a desire for success. How about you?

I do make mistakes, as we all do, but I’m not willing to ruin an entire day worrying about what I might have done wrong. I edit everything I write once, from Facebook posts to articles to graphics, but then I call it good. Except for fiction and other ebooks. Those I edit a few times before publishing. I know there will probably be a few typos I don’t catch, but that’s okay. I also know that I can go back and change things if I need to.

Just the other day, I noticed a typo in the description of a story I had published on Amazon. The story had been published for more than a week. Once I noticed it I just went into KDP, fixed it, and re-saved the entire thing. An easy fix that took only a couple of minutes.

Sometimes I forget to do something and think of it later. I just do it then, if I don’t realize there was no need for it in the first place.

I read a lot. There are typos in some of the books that I read from my favorite authors. It’s not a big deal, to me. It happens. And it makes me feel better when I realize my own mistakes, to know that others more experienced than me do the same thing.

All I’m saying is that there is no need to stress. When you realize a mistake, fix it. If you don’t, no one else will likely care. Take it easy on yourself. Do your best. And don’t stress over the small things.
