A willingness to fail is essential to all progress

In other words, you can't get it right until you don't care if you get it wrong.

Or as I used to say on the golf course, you can't hit it straight until you don't care if you hit it crooked.

It applies to everything as far as I can see.

Perfectionism is the great killer of creativity. Creativity is messy. The final polished product belies all the scribbled mistakes that went before it. No shortcuts here. If we can't accept that, we'll create nothing.

Nothing worthwhile anyway.
