Perfectionism is the death of done

 

“Perfectionism is
the voice of the oppressor,
the enemy of the people.
It will keep you
cramped
and insane
your whole life,
and it is the main obstacle
between you
and a shitty first draft.
I think perfectionism is based
on the obsessive belief
that if you run carefully enough,
hitting
each
stepping-
stone
just
right,
you won’t have to die.
The truth is

that you will die anyway

and that a lot of people
who aren’t even looking
at their feet

are going to do a whole lot better than you,
and have a lot more fun
while they’re doing it.”
