This is most important life hack from the world’s most successful people. "Always strive for the progress than perfection."
Most of us waste an enormous amount of time trying to make things perfect. Even most of the times, I too did the same mistake. With the time I realized that perfectionism actually kills our dreams and motivation. Being a perfectionist limits our efficiency and effectiveness. So Just “Choose Progress, not Perfection.”
Instead of trying to be perfect focus on progress. Remember, perfection does not exist. We should aim for making steady progress in all areas of our life. Try to have simple yet specific goals. Make them small and follow through.
Consider measuring your life and goals in terms of progress rather than perfection. Think of something right now you want badly in your personal life, your business, or even in your family which you don’t yet have. Consider the progress you have made in this area in the last year, two years or even ten years, and ask yourself if you don’t instantaneously feel more inspired, uplifted and hopeful. Realize you might not be where you want to be, but you’re definitely not where you use to be!
The goal is to keep your mind busy on a growth oriented mindset. It can be learning new things to implement it for the growth of the project at hand, or experimenting on the project to get the end result etc. It does not mean that you will lower your standards. You must put in you very best efforts to make the project near perfect.
But endless focus or a perfectionism mindset is a manifestation of procrastination and fear. Continuous tweaking is injurious to the future.
The truth is; progress is perfection.
