Do it right. Get it done.

Sometimes I get caught up in trying to making something be right. I’ll look for the perfect image for a presentation. Or the ideal color for a header. It’s easy to get sucked into details. The details could make something perfect if they were right. The value the perfection adds isn’t worth the price of lost momentum. Nine times out of ten, I don’t finish when I chase perfection.

The habit of finishing creates momentum. The habit of perfection slows things down. One habit produces results. The other delays them.

Your best chance of getting something right is finishing, then improving.

Do it right. Get it done. You can improve it later.
