Well… quit it. It’s a losing battle. (I can say this as an ever-recovering perfectionist.)
Most of the time “Done is better than perfect” because perfect never gets done.
Take, for example, that art collection you are working on. (You are working, right?) Is it perfect? Probably not. Will it ever be? Probably not. And you know what – even if you THINK it’s perfect, you will likely find someone who wants to license your perfect creation as long as you make a few changes… 🙂 Nature of art licensing.
So I encourage you to join me in my effort to do great work but to stop over-thinking it in an effort to ‘make it perfect’.
Here’s to your creative success!
