In other words, the ideal of perfection should never be an excuse for inaction. Rather than waiting for everything to be perfect, it’s much better to prepare as best you can, then begin by taking the first step, and be aware of any errors, or missteps, along the way. Use your action and interaction with the world around you as a source of feedback, and then correct your course as you go. Aim for constant improvement, rather than reaching for the impossible ideal of pure perfection.
