Done is better than perfect

又发现了自己的一个缺陷,不管做什么事情都像绣花一样慢,事情做的是不错,但是效率极其低下。比如,博客文章从开始写到发布至少要经历两三周,各种精雕细琢,但就是迟迟不能发布,总觉得还少了点东西。就是追求完美,一定要做到无可挑剔才行。实际上完美是一种永远都不可能达到的状态,从0到80分很容易,从80到99的时间是指数上涨的,从99到100,一定要耗费巨大的精力和时间。

慢的一个原因是把事情想得过于困难和复杂了,几乎每件事都会高估它的复杂度。面临一个强大的敌人时,自然会畏首畏尾。潜意识里面甚至认为有些事情是不可能完成的,回头看看这些事情也确实没有实现。

另一个原因是觉得为了完成这些东西需要先做一系列的准备,但是等准备完黄花菜都已经凉了。

从今天起,博客一定要在半小时内发布。做个快男!

  1. There are three states of being. Not knowing, action and completion.
  2. Accept that everything is a draft. It helps to get it done.
  3. There is no editing stage.
  4. Pretending you know what you’re doing is almost the same as knowing what you are doing, so just accept that you know what you’re doing even if you don’t and do it.
  5. Banish procrastination. If you wait more than a week to get an idea done, abandon it.
  6. The point of being done is not to finish but to get other things done.
  7. Once you’re done you can throw it away.
  8. Laugh at perfection. It’s boring and keeps you from being done.
  9. People without dirty hands are wrong. Doing something makes you right.
  10. Failure counts as done. So do mistakes.
  11. Destruction is a variant of done.
  12. If you have an idea and publish it on the internet, that counts as a ghost of done.
  13. Done is the engine of more.
