G.K. Chesterton said, “If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly.”

If you believe that you’re supposed to do something and that something is noble, then it’s worth doing poorly until you can do it well.

Michael Jordan didn’t start out as a basketball superstar. In fact, he didn’t make his high school team. Jerry Seinfeld says he, “totally bombed” in the first standup performance of his career.

Whatever you do, don’t label yourself based off your first few attempts. Failing right out of the gate is normal. Nobody starts out as a professional, but all professionals start out.

Remember, doing things badly is the first step to doing things well.
