From now I choose to be guided by the principle of good enough, with high praise for revision and complete disregard for regret.
Perfection is a target that moves with the unpredictability of context. I choose instead to shoot for short and sweet and adjacent to the point.
Better to be stabbed by thorns in search of a rose than be buried underneath the bush.
When I emerge it will be with a bouquet in one hand and some ointment in the other.
