About little improvements

Have you ever tried to make little improvements to any kind of thing you normally create? Have you tried to do visual improvements to it? For example: using smaller or bigger letters smaller, or using narrower or wider spaces between letters, words or lines, or making colors a little brighter or darker, and so forth.

It is very meticulous to make these very little variations of these modifications. Sometimes to do them feels like a very silly job.

Working on solutions of problems could be like using catapults, because you need to make one or two experimental shots before being able to calculate correct landing of stones.

Thomas Alva Edison said that "Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.". So, to really improve something, a certain amount of work is needed, including those silly modifications.
