Done is better than perfect. Always. Done is a result of an action. That action has to start in order to achieve “done” as a status.

Perfectionism can stop us dead in our tracks, long before we even start to take action. Fantasizing about the perfect outcome can be tremendously frustrating due to limited imagination. Some things are so hard to approach theoretically that the desired outcome can only be achieved through actually beginning to experience the process.

I call the feeling of paralysis at the precipice of a project: pervexionism. You want every detail, down to the nitty-gritty, to be just right but are vexing yourself in the process. Do first, improve later.
