There’s always a defect, always a slow drip, somewhere.  Every plan, every organization, every venture has a glitch.

The question isn’t, ‘is this perfect?’  The question is, ‘will this get me there?’

More often, though, we’re so busy fixing tiny leaks that we get distracted from the real goal, which is to go somewhere.”     (Seth Godin)
