perfectionism is a mirage
Perfectionism is a mirage. No matter how much we sand and buff, rough edges remain. Imperfection still seeps in through the cracks. The relentless pursuit of perfection yields diminishing returns, robbing us of progress and joy. It is far better to shed the shackles of perfectionism, embrace good enough, and forge ahead with resolve. When we step away from the mirror, imperfections fade into the background. What matters is moving forward, creating, and doing. Leave the minor flaws and call them character.
