This take is revealing.
Because all of us struggle, in one way or the other, with this issue of perfectionism.
You are your own worst critic.
Why is the worst all you can ever see?
Let the market be the judge.
And quit looking at your feet.
I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won’t have to die. The truth is that you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren’t even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a lot more fun while they’re doing it.
Perfectionism is a mean, frozen form of idealism, while messes are the artist’s true friend.
