We were raised to believe that practice makes perfect.
But in a rapidly evolving marketplace, is there time for continual practice? Certainly you want to produce something you're proud of.
The problem is, if you're constantly practicing, you're not publishing or producing. And while you may be able to see the flaws, perhaps your biggest fans, customers or audience members won't mind a slight imperfection. Your effort to share your idea, work or product with them makes them appreciate the effort.
And even if you do make an error, those who care most about seeing your work may even point it out, in a post-production QA.
Meanwhile, if you're holding back until it's perfect, they're not seeing any byproduct of your toil.
What are you waiting for? Go create something.
