I used to refer to this in some conversations as the "permission to be less than perfect", but "permission to suck" is crisper :)

The "permission to suck" pill needs to be taken along with the "desire to improve" pill. In other words, pay less attention to your current state and more to the trajectory - i.e. where you're heading. If the heading is right, then it is only a matter of time before you reach an arbitrary benchmark of your choosing.
