Thinking-out-loud

It does not have to be complete nor objective

Note to myself on perfectionism in content creation

There are a few subcategories of perfectionism that can be quite dangerious or at least very counterproductive and misleading for novice content creators. One of these misconceptions is the idea that a piece of content in any format including text, video or regular speech, have to be complete and objective in order to be valuable to an audience.

From my experience these are desirable traits of a content piece, but in practice, this is an unreasonable expectation for the most part. It is absolutely sufficient to provide only a part of the puzzle, such as a subjective point of view on one focus area. This type of insights will have enough value for that piece of content to exist and to be appreciated. Completeness and objectivity can then be aspired over time with additional content on the same issue from an additional angle.
