Maybe you've heard of the Distribution Paradox. Most people think that when Wal*Mart calls to place an order for a product they are selling, this is a good thing. And it can be.
The challenge is, this order often forces you to scale - maybe faster than you really want to or can really afford. You might have to buy new equipment or hire new people, or....
Expenses immediately mount. And many a company has flamed out and not been able to deliver under the pressure.
Perfection can be like that too. The demands of getting 100% on your next creative project can add pressures that cave it completely. Rewriting, reworking, tinkering, can be both boon and bane. We have to know when to let it go - because that's what the pros do (who are still in business): they deliver.
Perfection is a myth and a moving target, anyway. The goal is progress.
Want to raise high the roofbeams and read the first 3 chapters of my novel 'Devil's Candy'? Of course you do.
