Progress Over Perfection

  1. When you choose perfection over progress, your progress is pretty much non-existent. Perfectionism creates stagnation because you're scared to experiment and look stupid. As a result, it kills creativity.
    If you're not daring to be different, how far can you really go?
  2. What you do as your first try or even the next ten tries is going to be very far from a masterpiece, but do it anyway, without worrying about the results. Will it get super frustrating at times and make you question your entire existence? most definitely. Show up despite that. Don't try to skip the journey and the trial and error process. Talent is nothing without refinement.
  3. It's okay to make mistakes, in fact, they're your best friend.
    If you were perfect at everything, you wouldn't even have a reason to get out of bed in the morning. Forget ever learning anything or being excited to try something new. (You’ll be surprised how many inventions were made because somebody made a mistake)
