Don’t Let Perfect Get in the Way of Progress

Perfectionists get into trouble when the high expectations that they set for their work prevent them from making and sharing it. Better to make something that’s “good enough” and share it than to not make anything at all. Why? Because if you make something, you make progress on developing your idea. And if you share something, you get feedback from someone else’s brain on the problem you are trying to solve. Making and sharing moves your ideas forward. What you make doesn’t have to be polished. Think of it as a draft.
