The cult of the imperfect is the acceptance that good enough, something that gets the job done, is a far better than waiting to get things perfectly right.

The idea is attributed to Robert Alexander Watson-Watt, who pioneered the development of the early radar. His system was instrumental in detecting airplanes ahead of time and contributed to the Royal Air Force’s 1940 victory at the Battle of Britain.

When justifying his choice of a non-optimal frequency for his radar, he apparently said “Give them (the military) the third-best option to go on with; the second-best comes too late, [and] the best never comes”.

In other words, giving the air force a radar system which, while not perfect, enabled them to scramble fighters to intercept German bombers, helped win the aerial war over UK soil in WWII.
