“You gotta be a little flexible and let go of the perfectionism a little bit because it's not gonna be perfect. And so you've gotta have some realistic expectations for your budget, your plan, yourself, and just know stuff's gonna come up. You know, you can't control everything. And a lot of the perfectionism comes from trying to control everything.”
