How much is perfection costing us?
Isn't a new tech feature more valuable if it helps us learn more about how to improve it? Isn't what we have to offer to the world more powerful when it's being experienced and shared with others?
What is perfection? How do we qualify or quantify it? It's relative, and perfection to one person isn't perfection to another.
And yet, it doesn't stop us from tirelessly aiming to achieve it. We delay sharing something we have to offer with the world because it's not perfect yet, like launching a new course, creating and delivering a presentation to our community, or releasing new tech features.
Perfection also comes into play when we think about time. We hold back because it isn't exactly the right time.
We can also hide procrastination behind perfection. We tell ourselves we're not ready, so we keep delaying.
What have you held back from doing waiting for the perfect time? What have you delayed sharing because it wasn't perfect yet?

The alternative isn't to speak out and share our viewpoint without reflection or vetting, or release life-impacting code without thorough testing.
Working towards perfection is problematic in many instances; an alternative might be working through minor improvements over time and building toward something better.
There is no perfect time and no ideal standard that will be more valuable than finding the courage to start taking action now.
