SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
When do you finally call a project?  As in, when do you move on?  When is enough, enough?  When have you edited as far as you can take it?  When does it become harmful?  We embark on answering some of these questions and discovering that getting over our ideals and perfectionistic tendencies provide the insight needed.

POINT #1: “SIMPLE IS GREAT”
-Part of our problem is that we often think we have to do something so complex from the outset that we set ourselves up for failure.  We think it’s not enough.  Simple can be absolutely fantastic.  Learning to trust that and trusting yourself can go a long way in moving forward.

POINT #2: “PERFECTION IS IMPOSSIBLE”
-A big reason we don’t move on and put projects behind us is because we have some ideal of perfection in our minds.  It’s not going to happen.  Ever.  Going for excellence is productive, going for perfection is frustration.

POINT #3: “MAKE SOME SHIT”
–You’re going to make some crap.  Especially at first.  Probably.  That’s alright.  You’re supposed to.  You have to get the garbage our first before you can begin to find your own voice.  It’s okay to put it on the shelf if it just doesn’t work.
