The Enemy of All Good Things

From Elizabeth Gilbert on creative minds and perfection:

"Perfection murders joy. You cut yourself out of the game before you even start. You cut yourself out of the game because you’ve decided it’s never going to be as good as your ideal. But this is on us. We have a certain responsibility to take that on and allow ourselves to release work which is imperfect – which, by the way, is all work! You’re never going to please everyone. I mean, there are people who think the Sistine Chapel is gaudy."
