The "Better Immediately" Principle
This principle can be illustrated by this example;you see a spot of stain on your stove, rather than wiping sighing and telling yourself that the whole stove needs a wipe over, you just take a piece of rag and clean the stain first.
This simple action leaves you feeling a little better about the situation. Rather than aiming for perfection ( wiping the whole stove), you acted immediately and made a positive difference. This, of course, shouldn't stop you from cleaning the whole stove later
This is a useful principle to use. Rather than always seeking perfection, strive for a simple and direct solution first to address the problem at hand.
