Many things will not always come out how you initially have been planned, and guess what? It’s ok.

Many things will not always come out how you initially have been planned, and guess what? It’s ok.

When you’re part of a team, especially if you like things to be in a specific way, you’ll find that things often don’t go as planned. And guess what? It’s great.

Starting a new project or leading a team is like having a blank page before you. You have your ideas about how things should be done, but as the team grows and everyone starts working, you see that everyone has their way of doing things. This is where you need to start letting go. You must trust your team and understand that not everything will be as you want, and that’s okay.

Try to escape the perfectionist loop; it’s a horrible curse.

I have seen awesome projects ending in drafts, and professionals drove nuts to fix things that were way better in the first iteration: Trust and Delegation. When you trust a team, you must understand that the outcome may differ from what you expect.

Things turn out differently than you think they will. This isn’t a bad thing, though. It’s just part of working with others. You get to see new ideas and ways of doing things you might not have thought of.

As you get more experience working in teams, you’ll focus more on the big picture rather than worrying about every little detail. This helps you stay calm and keeps the team moving forward.

It’s also important to remember that you can’t do everything by yourself. Everyone has limited energy and time. When you work as a team, you can use everyone’s strengths and ideas. Often, you’ll find that the results are even better than what you could have done on your own.

In the end, learning to be okay with things not being perfect is a big part of working in a team. You realize that even if things don’t go as planned, they can still turn out great.

It’s a good thinking for your peace of mind and helps the whole team do better.
