PROGRESS OVER PERFECTION


Listening to a leadership podcast recently, while driving in the country, I heard this quote, “Perfection is oftentimes the enemy of progress”. This quote was so good, that I put it in my notes on my phone. Many times I hold myself back because things aren’t perfect! I can’t write the book yet, because things aren’t perfect!

I can’t shoot the video yet, because things aren’t perfect!

I can’t go hard toward my dream, because things aren’t perfect!


However, what God continues to reveal to me over and over again is that, as long as I try, progress will happen. We often want to launch the perfect product, have the perfect car, or run the perfect business, but perfect businesses aren’t progressing.


If you want to see more good results in your life, don’t just look to be perfect, look to progress! Progress is when you turn something from potential energy to kinetic energy. When you take action and trust God every step of the way. Many things we’ve launched in the ministry haven't been perfect. Our free resources, products, programs, series, and all haven’t been perfect, but it progressed us further to reach more women.


So, the next time you wonder why things haven’t moved forward in your life, check your perfection meter. If everything has to be perfect before you move, then you are missing out on the powerful hand of God. Any time God calls you to do something, you won’t be able to do it on your own. You will need Him to fulfill it.

Let go of perfection to see progress!

Thank you Morgan ! This is exactly what I needed to hear! I definetly have a bad case of analysis paralysis paired with waiting for perfect circumstances and the perfect 'pieces'. God even gave me a dream about how I need to address this in my life! All we have to do is show up- which requires doing the work;

and have faith -which requires relying on Him!

God bless you and thank you for following God in your ministry! It has been such a helpful tool in so many ways,and a blessing in my life!

I always say,"progression not perfection". A few hours after uploading my recent Youtube video I saw a typo in the intro. I rolled my eyes in disappointment then I thought, "I will leave it. I will fix the error so it will not happen again. It is ok that its not perfect". Hours after I received a comment that made me cry. While I was recording for this said video, God was having a conversation somewhere with one of His Daughter's. This Daughter shared with me how the video brought her to tears and touched her life in a significant way.

No typo, being stressed about what is perfect or not perfect will ever be of greater importance than what…
