🤔 Zeal Interestings

A collection of cool stuff the ZEAL team found interesting this week.

Perfect is not the same as perfectionism

Modern perfect: A plane that doesn’t crash, a bus that leaves on time. Surgery that fixes a broken valve and a computer program that doesn’t cause a kernel panic. These are the building blocks of our built world.

Perfectionism is a way to berate others for not meeting imaginary standards. Or berating ourself as a way to avoid shipping the work.
