I see it all the time. Heck, I live it. Too many of us are waiting on perfect. We wait for the perfect idea. The perfect opportunity. The perfect applicant. The perfect proof.
We spend so much time waiting on perfect, that we miss the good, the great, and the fascinating. One of the few things more boring than perfection must be the quest for it.
How about, starting today, you make a change? Instead of criticizing, scrutinizing, and dismissing the imperfect, why not decisively pursue the really good? Vigorously improve the good to be great. Continuously tweak the great. You'll never reach perfection this way, but you'll be a lot more successful than if you were to keep on waiting on perfect.
