Sometimes you finesse. You tinker. You create.
All that work might lead to a perfectly formed cake ready for butterscotch sauce and a whack of cream.
Sometimes even all of your hard work won't stop half the cake staying in the pan and the other half falling onto a plate in a mess.
You have two choices. 1. Cry, scream and shout 2. Remind yourself the cracks in the cake will help the sauce get in and then eat the damn well delicious cake.
Whatever it is - cake - relationship - technology - work team - painting or holiday. Don't lose the magic of the moment by fretting about imperfections.
The imperfections may just make things great.
