We don’t need to look for perfection, but that doesn’t mean putting out unthoughtful work.
Looking for perfection is a cheap way out to never get things done, because everybody knows that nothing is ever perfect.
Instead we can look at the minimum. What’s the lowest bar we need to pass to get the point across?
Where’s the passing point where your audience will understand and connect to?
What’s the story you’re telling and what parts does it need to be told?
Letting go of perfect frees us up from the parts we care about, and instead puts the attention back into what needs to be told.
