“Done is better than perfect,” they say.
It’s the idea that while we might strive for perfection, we should at the same time be comfortable with giving up as soon as we hit that “good enough” sweet spot.
I reject the whole premise.
“Good enough” isn’t good enough.
Rather than seeking some arbitrary point along the road towards perfection, we should strive to add beauty instead. Since beauty is both perfection and imperfection all at once, it’s a much more versatile property.
No effort is ever wasted in pursuit of adding beauty into this world.
