In Steve Willison’s book, Prospering,* he keeps coming back to the expression,
Progress over perfection.
So simple, so important.
It doesn’t have to be perfect, it just has to keep moving forward.
And it will keep moving forward with or without you.
So maybe you want to roll with it.
*Prospering is one of my (new) favorite stoic meditation guides. He uses short excerpts and interpretive examples making for easily digestible chapters you can think about all day. Calling you Ryan Holiday stans – you’ll definitely want to check this book out.
