Every time we set out to do something great we can only set our standards as high as our imagination and experience can conceive.
The art we make and the work we do will never be “perfect” because perfection is a standard that is always in a state of flux. It changes as we learn and grow.
So the hardest work is done in your imagination.
Every guitarist will only play as well as she can imagine herself playing and all luthiers will be forever limited to creating the instrument they are imagining.
