How Do You Know When You're Finished?

Even if you're not a perfectionist, it's easy to find something wrong with your work. No matter how many revisions you do, it can seem like it'll never really be finished. So how do you decide when it's time to call it finished? What's your process?

As explained in the video above, Ze Frank believes there's a point in your workflow when you're making small and strange edits -- a point where you may end up telling yourself you should just stop because it's never going to be perfect. That's the point when you're done and the time you should let your work out into the world. Is that the case for you, or do you have another method? Share your thoughts in the comments.

    its never finished its just "ready for the public"

    and thats usually a when they want it not when i want to give it to them

    I usually write and rewrite and obsess over it and edit for hours upon hours before I finally throw the whole thing away in frustration. It's not like Oprah is actually going to read my email anyway *sigh*

      Don't say that Tony :(
