Perfect is the Enemy of Good
Have you ever heard the saying that “perfect is the enemy of good”? Sometimes the concept is started as “perfect is the enemy of success”.
The idea is this, if you are pursuing perfection you never get your projects to completion. The advice is to “seek excellence rather than perfection”.
I think people also face a similar problem when it comes to “finding their passion”.
It’s easy to get lost in the seeking.
My advice is to “do what you like”. Progress of all kinds (including our personal and economic development) is dependent on “doing”, taking action. Seeking can easily result in despair where action can result in “course adjustments” that clarifies how your passion can manifest as vocation.
Perhaps this concept can be phrased as “seeking is the enemy of finding”. And the advice? “Take heartfelt action now”.
