Day 3 – Stick with your first draft

Stick with your first draft

📋 Today, your challenge is super simple: stick with your first draft!

Trust me, I know how hard it is. Your first take didn’t sound perfect, or the lighting wasn’t quite right, or… well, the list could go on and on!

But that’s the point! If you’re dead set on perfection, you’ll always find a reason to re-shoot your Stories. But that is a WASTE of time (and ain’t nobody got time for that)!

✅ Why done is better than perfect

You’ve probably heard that phrase before, but that’s ESPECIALLY true with your IG Stories! And it’s basically our slogan at Team Beadon 💖

🙅‍♀️ Shooting over and over can actually do more harm than good:

→ Your audience wants your authentic self, and if you record over and over again, you start to lose that.

→ Stories are temporary, so they don’t need to be picture perfect every time, and even if they are they’ll be gone soon!

→ Remember how we said overthinking your outline will show in your Stories? Same goes for loads of takes. Your audience will be able to tell.

→ Most importantly, it’s a waste of time! If take one is good enough, anything past that is taking away time from more important things in your biz.

😎 So today, I dare you: post your first take!

Even if you stumble over your words or your lighting isn’t great or you forget to put on your filter, POST IT ANYWAY! Your audience will love to see your personality, and you’ll SAVE TIME by moving on.
