When you aim for perfection, you discover it’s a moving target. — George Fisher
It destroys creative lives. Perfectionism takes away time, money, and resources. It’s an unattainable illusion.
If you want to be the best at anything, you need to be the best at practicing and iterating more than anyone else and knowing when to let go. Perfection is an endless productivity loop.
Anyone working in a creative field knows the relentless pursuit of perfection is time-consuming. The urge to get things just right never goes away. Strive to do your very best, but don’t aim for perfection.
Abandoning perfection doesn’t mean you should settle or make lazy excuses for your work. It’s great to have high creative standards and strive for excellence.
