Maybe the road to success is paved with mistakes.
You can’t achieve perfection. You can’t even fool the rest of the world into thinking you have.
Instead, getting somewhere — getting anywhere — in life is about going through a process of experimenting, making mistakes, learning, and improving.
If you try to get around that process, the only thing that happens is you become completely wound up in yourself and you fail to improve your work, your product, or your creative skills.
