Done is better than perfect

We often hear about perfection; The trainer will tell the trainee that “practice makes perfect” as if it’s an attainable endeavor. The thing is that there is no such thing as “perfect”, it has and always shall remain a figment of our imagination. So why do let it paralyze us to the point of inaction? It’s because we all bought into the myth of perfection! Well I’m saying no more! I’m saying that to go through with a project to its eventual completion is a hell of a lot more important and essential than any irrational pursuit of perfection. Although, to strive for perfection is noble and a must for anyone that respects their craft, I truly believe that “DONE” is better than “PERFECT”. Give your project the attention it needs but also respect the fact that its completion will encourage you to keep going.
