Focused On Process

Perfectionism is not a quest for the best.  It is a pursuit of the worst in ourselves, the part that tells us that nothing we do will ever be good enough -- that we should try again.  No.  We should not.  Focused on process, our creative life retains a sense of adventure.  Focused on product, the same creative life can feel foolish or barren.

-- Julia Cameron (4 March 1948 -), American teacher, author, and artist, Inspirations : Meditations from The Artist's Way (2001)
