Perfection is a standard which can never be attained. It may seem like a noble goal, but in reality, it’s an impossible dream that not only paralyzes us when we’re at the finish line but also discourages us from starting.
Perfectionism can be devastatingly destructive, leading to crippling anxiety or depression, and it may even be an overlooked risk factor for suicide.
Perfection is a myth. Nothing is ever truly perfected. Everything can be improved and done better.
James Victore on when do you need perfection and when should you ignore it.

Stop polishing and ship instead. Polished perfect isn’t better than perfect, it’s merely shinier. And late.
Until Next Week
Don’t go after perfection, you’ll never reach it. Ship your art when it’s good enough, but not a moment later. And remember, perfection is the enemy, not the goal.
