We limit our success by not knowing when to “let go” March 26, 2017

In our personal development efforts, not knowing when to let go can hurt us in two major ways – one of them surprising.

The first is in not knowing when to abandon a hopeless project, a lost cause.

The predictable result is wasted time and energy that could better be spent on a new concept, product, or service.

But sticking with a project too long can also hurt our personal growth progress when we work on it too long in a quest for perfection.

This often results in totally killing the verve, edge, and freshness that may be inherent in the project.

We are better off limiting the “improvement” process, then letting go of our project and sending it to make its way in the world.
