The need for perfection will prevent you from ever shipping anything...
It's great that you have brilliant ideas for your passion projects. I'm sure you have notebooks full of them. Like I do.
But unless you let go of the need to have everything perfect before you do anything...
Perfect idea of the end product...
You will never ship anything.
The biggest lie that anyone ever told you is that you can't send out a 'product' until it's perfect.
And the second biggest, is that you can't make mistakes.
Absolute freaken codswallop! You have to make mistakes and you have to fail so that you can learn!! It's the quickest way to become an expert any day...
The only way to get past this need for perfection is to just ship whatever the bloody hell it is that you are working on right now. Today.
"If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product then you have launched too late" (LinkedIn founder, Reid Hoffman)
Until we meet again my friends,
