Giving Birth

Our lives would be so much easier of we could just jump right to the good stuff. Skip all the fluff, all the filler, all the starts and stops and dead ends, and just put our best stuff out there. No gradual increase, no iterations, no changes to make it better, just start out with a finished product.

We don’t need to change it; it’s already perfect.

Unfortunately, that’s not how it works. There are always changes; things to be improved; bumps in the road; ways to make it work better; newer and better versions of the product.

Why waste time with perfection, since we’re never going to get there anyway?

Things work better for us, for everyone involved, when we just put ourselves out there. Do it, test it, ship it, and let the chips fall where they may. Try it out, see how it works, make some adjustments, and try it again.

We need to stop being so afraid of making a mistake and just get out there and do something. Nothing we do is ever going to be perfect, so why are we so scared to take that chance?

We can’t be afraid of failure; it’s how our best ideas are born.

Failure is success in progress.

Albert Einstein
