Deliver the value

When you have to choose between getting it done and getting it perfect, get it done. Don’t let the desire for perfection be an excuse for never finishing.

Do your very best with the time and resources you have. Even if the results are not perfect, they will nonetheless bring great value.

By all means, let perfection be your goal. Just be sure not to let it become your excuse.

Be true to the highest standards you can envision, while at the same time being realistic about what you’re doing. Your magnificent vision will be of no use to anyone unless it is expressed in some specific, tangible form.

Even if you can’t get it perfect, go ahead and get it done. Achieving ninety-five percent of what you envision is much better than holding out for one hundred percent and never getting it done.

Though it won’t be perfect, and not everyone will like it, go ahead and deliver the value that you create.

— Ralph Marston
