It is not the perfect that we love, it is the imperfections that bring the magic, the quirks, the kinks, the cracks that allow the light. Yet we are conditioned to strive for perfection and it is what is sold to us.
Blemishes are what makes something different, interesting and lovely.
Whatever ideas we have there is always something more we can add, we can perfect, polish, shine and enhance.
The challenge with that is it becomes an obsession and we end up not creating, we simply end up perfecting our ideas. To create something, we actually have to share it with the world or it remains a highly tuned idea.
Perfect is really a shield we create to avoid doing things that we have been conditioned to fear. We can never perfect, as the moment we perceive it to be perfect then will find out that we’ve been out perfected. Perfect is an excuse we use to avoid the exposure that sharing what we create brings.
The only way to overcome this is to simply create to a level and then share it. We will always get feedback, some constructive and some we could choose just to ignore. But we will learn ourselves simply by pushing the button and getting our stuff out in the world.
The choice is simple, have lots of great ideas or create a prototype and make it even better each time we put it out to the world. All great things have a path of evolution, it’s a question whether or not we want to step down the path.
