Continuous improvement is better than delayed perfection

Last week, I wrote

The way to get good is to be bad at a thing for a while, and keep working at it.

This morning, someone I know shared this beautiful Mark Twain quote, delightfully illustrated by Mélodie TLD

Continuous improvement is better than delayed perfection

A comic. First pane: a person stacking bricks one-at-a-time. Second pane: a pile of unstacked brick, and a person sitting down looking sad.

This is such a lovely thing to keep in mind next time you feel like an imposter.
