blogThere are three ‘P’ words used in business which at first glance may be unrelated until you really sit back and think. Those words are productive, procrastination and perfection.

The one that will do the most harm to your business would be, you would think procrastination but it is perfection. Take a minute or two to let it sink in. All three words are intertwined with each other. You may be asking yourself: “How so?”

I will use the process of producing this blog as an example of how the three ‘Ps’ are related to each other and how you may be doing some irreparable damage to your business by not recognizing the intertwining relationship.


perfect_origOne of my idols, Vince Lombardi, was fond of saying: “Practice does not make perfect.  Only perfect practice makes perfect.”  However, another one of his famous quotes was: “Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence.”  Therefore, it is obvious that Lombardi himself is not perfect in that he states how to become perfect on one quote and then contradicts himself on another quote in that the closest you can get to perfection is actually, ‘excellence’.
