Taste Sets Your Ceiling
Your taste sets the ceiling for your craft.
The space between your taste and competency in your craft is called “the gap”.
As your taste improves, you can begin to distinguish between bad to good, and good to great. Your ceiling rises and the gap increases.
Masters of a craft have supreme taste. Their ceiling is high, they see “the gap”, and work for a lifetime to reach this ceiling. But part of the journey is that your craft will never reach your taste. It’s asymptotic. Once your taste has reached your craft, you have achieved perfection.
