The age-old debate of “prolific vs perfect” is continuous.
On one side, there are those who produce a large volume of work, even at the cost of quality.
On the other hand, there are those who prioritize creating a flawless piece, even if it means taking longer to complete it.
Both approaches have their benefits and drawbacks, and the best approach depends on the situation and individual goals.
Sometimes when people are trying to do a good job, they have to decide if they want to do a lot of work, even if it might not be perfect, or if they want to take their time and make sure everything is just right, even if it means doing less.
Some people who do a lot of work can learn quickly and get better faster. But sometimes when they are rushing, they make mistakes and might not be happy with their work.
Other people who take their time and want everything to be perfect might not do as much work, but their work is often really good. They take their time and make sure everything is just right, which can help them get more jobs later on.
It’s important to figure out what is important to you and to find a good balance between doing a lot of work and making sure everything is perfect.
There are a lot of examples of successful people who were prolific and also produced quality work through it. Oprah presented over 4k episodes. Richard Branson started more than 400 companies. Roger Federer played more than 1500 singles matches.
Aim to be like them.
