Nothing is perfect. You'll be much happier overall if you can except this fact. Of course you can still strive to do your best. As long as you know you have done the best you can do, what is enough.

Just keep on making music. Everything will fall into place.

I can't call myself a perfectionist because none of my music is anywhere close to perfect.

That said, I used to have a debilitating fear of not being good enough. So I never finished anything, because if it wasn't finished, then it was okay to not be good enough.

I've gotten over it. I've still never done anything even remotely close to perfect, but I've released music I'm proud of, and which other people seem to like.


In my books, perfect means something like a bona fide classic that will be played 20 years from now. Personally, I'd be happy to be able to write just pretty good music, that'd be already beating 99% of the field.

As said in my introduction as well, it happens to me (and even more & more) because of the constant changing scene & musical styles out there ...

I guess with time and experience you just learn when to pick your battles, make small wins, it all contributes to the winning the war.

Or in other terms, when climbing that endless mountain to the infinitely distant peak of perfection, sometimes it`s ok to take satisfaction from just reaching that next outcrop or overhang, and taking some time to admire the view, see where you came from, how you got there. Then reach up for that next handhold and keep climbing.


Damn brother, you could be my music therapist...feeling better already! :) Wise words...
