Make it a point of principle to do things, not because the thing is necessarily the perfect action, but because I choose the life where I do things, over the life where I always wait for the perfect opportunity.

How I’m applying this

I absolutely needed to hear this advice this month. I very often find myself in a situation where I feel paralysed to act until I can gather more information and am stuck trying to ensure I never make mistakes or trying to time a situation perfectly. This ties in closely with Paul Graham’s How to do what you love and is one of my personal operating principles.
