Perfect enough

Perfect enough

Time to expose the flaws

artist at work (2)Don’t let perfectionism become an excuse for procrastinating. You can continue making improvements, editing, revising, polishing, testing and tuning without ever releasing a final product. But at some point, you have to decide it’s perfect enough.

It’s time to let fans, readers, customers find the remaining flaws. Maybe they’ll love it as it is. They’ll never see the same imperfections that you’re obsessing over. They may find some that you never noticed.

Let it go. Share your work with the world.

Work on the next one. It will start closer to perfection based on what you’ve already done.

Good enough is too low a threshold, perfect enough is better.

Be better. Do better.

Your Uncle Ralph, Del Chatterson
