“Perfectionism is the enemy”

Dylan Field CEO & Co-founder of Figma

“The hardest part for me and others when you bring products to market is not being a perfectionist, and we made this mistake once with Figma. We started Figma in August 2012 and did not launch our closed beta until December 2015. We didn't launch our GA (General Availability) release where anyone could sign up and use it until October 2016, and we didn't start charging until summer 2017. My reflection of that is like we moved way too slow. (...) I think that perfectionism is the enemy. Always.
