It’s important to remember that clarity comes through action. For instance, clarity that two semi-introverts might not like to be the stars of their own party. And that there might be a better way to build a community without needing to hide in the corner or fake a bathroom break.
Why is that important for business?
Figuring things out in business is an imperfect path. But it is only by doing something that isn’t quite a hit out of the ballpark that the next thing that IS a fit becomes possible. We often want to think things through before we take a step, but the only way to figure a thing out – the only way to get clarity or confidence – is via action.
That’s why it is so helpful to ask: what did I love about this thing? It doesn’t have to be all of it or even most of it, but it’s important to identify and keep those parts, and find a way to mitigate the parts that don’t serve.
Without action and reflection, it’s like you are sifting through puzzle pieces without knowing what the top of the box looks like. You shouldn’t – we shouldn’t – underestimating the immense power of continually making imperfect steps, gathering the “not that” from it, and redirecting.
As the saying goes: Eat the fish and spit out the bones.
