If you wait for perfection, you might wait too long

I guess I will take credit for this phrase (see title).

To me, it reflects a  key idea behind lean-agile-scrum.

It is an idea expressed in many other ways also.  Ex: The perfect is the enemy of the good, which originated in France.

I like my phrasing, because to me it has a sense of humor.  It teases you.  It says: "Why wait?  How bad can it be if you make a mistake? You might learn something if you act. And learn much faster."  In fact, in most of our business situations, this 'learning from real action' is so true and so powerful.
