Perfect is the Enemy of Good
File under: Self-Improvement
I have a sticky note on my monitor with the quote “Perfect is the enemy of good - Voltaire” and I found out from the following article that I have misquoted the famous French writer and philosopher. The meaning is still the main point, which is why I keep it there. If you’re like me, you tend to overthink and want to make things perfect before you launch them.
“Good” will get your product to market and move the ball forward. “Perfect” freeze you before you begin. Doubts start to creep in, and you’ll never move forward.
