The pursuit of perfection can get in the way of good design. With print, a job doesn’t go to print until it’s as close to perfection as possible. With web, it’s acceptable—almost the norm—to launch then tweak. If something doesn’t perform as expected, you can change it.
It’s one of the hardest things for me to wrap my head around when I do web work since I come from the world of print.
Ready or not!
So today, I’m flinging open the curtains and going live with my next website update while I’m still working out the remaining kinks.
You know what? It feels pretty liberating!
I'm really curious though. How many of you have ever held off doing something because you worried you weren’t ready yet? And were you really not ready or was perfectionism getting in your way too?
