I get this a lot, but I'm learning how silly it really is. For me, it's been as bad as writing my goals down but because I just couldn't get the formatting right in Evernote (it didn't look pretty enough), I gave up. Stupid right?
Something we all forget about the term "perfect", is that there isn't really such a thing. There's always room for improvement and quite frankly, the world would be very boring if it was any other way.
The best way to get something as good as it can be is to just start, the momentum of doing something will make sure the product (or whatever you are doing) will get better.
That's exactly what I did, I started. I just threw a bunch of goals I needed to do into an Evernote document, even if it looked terrible and was hard to read.
Although after a week of using it, I learnt what the problems were with it and improved it. It now looks much cleaner, works better and is making sure I'm more productive.
So, what's the point of this thread?
To share what I've been learning more and more of every day for a few weeks now.
An amazing product is the result of many bad prototypes
Don't waste any more time fretting over the small things, get on with what you need to do and be done with it for today even if it could be better. You can improve it over time.
Hope someone out there gets some value from this.
