Thought of the Week- Be Proud of Your Scars

At times it feels like everyone wants perfection and that any deviation is unacceptable and classified almost a mortal sin. This drive for getting everything right also makes you prone to not taking chances, to minimizing risk or showing any kind of vulnerability. This safe play thinking ultimately leads to underperformance.

My advice is to not seek perfection but continuous improvement. Push yourself and your organization to improve. Take chances. Celebrate rather than fear your mistakes. Relish your scars of trying that you receive along the way. Each scar makes you better, stronger and more likely to win in the future. Go push and make some scars.
