I grew up as a big Toronto Blue Jays fan.
Some of the most heartbreaking times of my childhood came when watching Jays ace pitcher Dave Stieb miss out on a no-hitter or a perfect game in the final inning on three separate occasions in the late 1980’s.
It would have been a big deal, since those games (where the pitcher doesn’t allow anyone to get a hit, or even get on base in the case of “perfect” games) happen so rarely.
It was like the baseball gods were mocking Stieb (maybe he shot himself in the foot by titling his autobiography “Tomorrow I’ll Be Perfect” a few years before that).
There’s a happy ending because Stieb finally pitched a no-hitter in 1990, but perfection is impossible in baseball … and for online courses too!
Every day there are online entrepreneurs holding off on launching their online course because they want it to be absolutely perfect.
I say ditch the quest for perfect and get whatever you’re working on out into the world, since the delays caused by striving for perfectionism kill motivation and drain bank accounts.
Great advice comes from course expert Danny Iny, who recommends you first create a “pilot” version of it to see if it resonates … if not, you won’t waste too much time or energy on a non-seller.
Danny’s just released a short video about creating a pilot version of your new course which shows how much you should charge for it too (a small course doesn’t mean that the price should be small, by the way)
