Progress, not perfection

Perfection is for those who rarely get anything completed or published. I read that somewhere.

The idea of getting things perfect doesn’t really make complete sense sometimes. I look and strive for progress; it could take me longer, but I know I will get things completed and published — out to the public.

When you work for perfection, you hesitate often and are constantly in an analysis-paralysis state. You are frequently asking: “would people like it?”, “how many claps/likes/hearts will this work get?”… Correct me if I’m wrong.

I’d rather keep working, publishing and getting constant feedback than getting stuck in one project because it’s not perfect yet.

Nothing wrong with perfection if you know you can get there, but sometimes quantity makes you better in the long-term. It’s like that cliche sentence: practice makes perfection.
