Have you ever noticed that the words content (meaning information or things) and content (in a state of peaceful happiness) are spelt the same?

When it comes to the creation of content (videos, blog posts, social media posts, etc), a question I get asked A LOT is, “Quality or Quantity? Which is more important?”

People are always asking me if they should be creating lots of content, or should they focus on creating really good content…

The answer is both. But, actually it is the question that is wrong.

The question shouldn’t be about quality versus quantity, instead we should focus on quality multiplied by quantity.

And it’s the same thing you in your life.

Think about every single moment. How many quality moments can you have, and how good is the quality of them?

If 90% of your life is lived at 90% happiness, that gives you a life that is 81% happy.

They may not sound great, but it wipes the floor with the alternative of many lives… If you’re 100% happy, but only for 10% of the time, that’s only 10% in total.

Surely it is better to be 90% happy for 90% of the time, than it is 100% for just 10%, or worse still…

What so many people do is become so focused on trying to perfection that they NEVER find it. 100% x 0% = 0% (suddenly 81% sounds better, huh?)

I’ve said it many times already, and I’m going to say it again: DONE BEATS PERFECT.

When it comes to making changes in your life, just do it. That thing that you really want to do, that maybe you have been putting off for whatever reason…

Typical reasons are things like, “I don’t have the money” or “I don’t have the time” or “I don’t know the right people” or “I’m scared of what people will think of me…”

If something really matters to you, just do it.

And remember, done beats perfect every single time.

No one gets anything perfect the first time. Things improve as you do them, and as you practise them, you get better at them.

Done beats perfect because if it’s not done, it will never get anywhere near perfect.
