Inspirational ring “ Done is better than perfect“
This moment, when you should have published a song, a book, a blogpost, a new painting or a piece of software. But you didn’t, because it wasn’t perfect. Yet. And so, you took some more time to tinker with it. To not having to show it to the world.
It’s always easier to not finish something because it’s not perfect. Because if it’s not existent, it can not be criticised, ridiculed or rejected. But it also doesn’t exist!!!
I always find it hard to show the world something that I made. Because there is always something that could be improved. Something that could put off the moment you have to show up. To enter stage. To say: „It’s me. I made this “. Or maybe even: „I like you! “
In these moments the sentence “Done is better than perfect” often has helped me to go the next step, to show something, to hit that „publish now” button.
So, I made this little inspirational ring to be a reminder, a thorn in the flesh, if you will, to go the final step.
This reflects on the surface of the Ring: The letters create a rough surface that makes it slightly uneasy to wear it. It’s supposed to be a butt-kicker after all! A constant reminder to FINISH and SHIP!
Because once you Ship, once you publish, all uncertainties, all fears and nervousness will disappear. Now you can deal with the facts. And listen to feedback. And make it better next time.
