Not Because It’s Perfect

Don’t start because it’s perfect, start because it’s time.

You will always discover things as you go, always change things for the next time. But waiting till it’s perfect is really an excuse to never do it.

Start. Learn. Fix. Repeat. Not because it’s perfect. Because it’s time.

I’m celebrating today the start of Michigan All-State Jazz Choir – a long dreamed development finally coming to reality. I got to rehearse the choir today in preparation for their first annual performance this January. It won’t be perfect – logistics, rehearsal schedules, and so much more will be fine-tuned and improved. But we’ve started, and that’s what’s most important.
