Nothing is Perfect

Correct me if I’m wrong… nothing is perfect.

This is not any negative thinking but a good discovery from my own experiences.

Why I said “Nothing is perfect”?

Here’s the story why…

Recently I was so busy on creating product, designing a new website, integrating software and so on. During the work, I was so busy on making everything perfect. At the end of the day, everything were delayed to get done.

Even though I have make a better one, but still can’t really satisfied the work. This is really bad!

Project deadline is there and I have to deliver the product even though I’m not really satisfied the work. After a few days, I’m look back my work performance and progress. I found out that I shouldn’t trying to make things perfect because there’s no such thing ‘perfect’ in this world.

There’s no perfect product in the marketplace. We can only improve the product and make it better from time to time. So if I’m going to make the product perfect before deliver them, then the product will NEVER release to the public because by the time I thought that product is perfect, there will be a better one on the market.

It’s a NEVER ENDING game. There’s no PERFECT iPhone, iPad, Microsoft Window, Car, Laptop and so on. But they will have a better model and version from time to time. Don’t you agree with that?

I learned something from my mistake.

If the product already good, deliver it first and improve it later, make a better one later. Otherwise the ball will never get rolling. You will waste all the money, time and effort in researching for better product. At the end of the day, you don’t make any money and business fail.

Personally I think the word ‘perfect’ shouldn’t exist because nothing is perfect in this world. (I could be wrong but at least I don’t see anything is perfect for now)

If you’re like me, always trying to make things perfect, you might get the same problem like me. Never get the things done on time. LOL…

Feel free to leave your feedback and I love to know your thought as well.

Thank you!
