The purpose of this article is to encourage anyone, especially business owners, to avoid these maladaptive behaviors and to spend their time in taking action rather than thinking about it.
If one would take a look at some of the most successful businesses in the world today, they would quickly see that this is not the way that they do business. Successful, money making businesses release their products before they are “perfect,” because they know that the product will progress along the line towards perfection at a much quicker pace if consumers are involved in the process.
