When you perform surgery, you
quickly learn that perfect is the enemy of good. Every surgical
procedure has certain limits, and when you exceed them,

definitive procedure rather than a perfect one. You commit

you use all you skills to achieve an excellent result. When the
temptation arises to pursue perfection, you put your surgical
instruments down and leave the operating room. Every good
surgeon resists the temptation to convert an excellent operation
into a perfect one. In the pursuit of perfection, you push the
surgical envelop too far and complications happen.

should stop just before something bad happens rather than just
after. Thatís the difference between going for a good result
rather than a perfect one. Good gets the job done better than
perfect, and does it with fewer complications. The best
surgeons do the least amount of surgery that still gives
definitive results. They achieve excellence without falling
into perfectionís trap.
