the perfect solution

It’s not quite right.

It’s always going to be not quite right.

If you’re waiting for everything to be exactly how you want, you’re never going to get anywhere.

What is the best option that’s actually available to you? Don’t reject something because it doesn’t completely fulfil every criteria. Ask instead whether it improves your current circumstances. Consider every option on its relative merits instead of its absolute validity.

Does it take you in the direction you want to go? Does it enable you to take real action rather than just endlessly theorising?

There is no perfect solution.

All you can do is identify the possible solutions and go from there.
