I have this same problem recording my voicemail message. After a half dozen bad takes, I end up typing up a script so I remember the words, and even then it takes another half dozen takes to get it somewhere near what I had in my head to begin with. Such is life - we edit as we go, and if we're lucky, we get something we're OK with. If you're in the studio with a band, you have the help of a team of recording professionals, which helps immeasurably, but when you're on your own, it can drive ya nuts.
Regardless of whether you're a Beatles fan or not, it's pretty well established that they were very successful and highly regarded.

For some reason, someone has seen fit to catalog all the myriad mistakes found on Bealtes records. There are a LOT of them. The average listener is probably not aware of ANY of them. Don't sweat the petty stuff, and don't pet the sweaty stuff.
Kind of funny isn’t it, how much easier it is to play fast than slow?On uptempo stuff I can usually nail it pretty quick. On slow songs I usually set a click on 16th notes and that usually keeps me from rushing.
I've found this to be true lately too. We just got done with a faster song and I was sort of wowed as to how much tighter I was, generally speaking, compared to slower songs I've done. It's totally funny.Kind of funny isn’t it, how much easier it is to play fast than slow?
Speaks to how music is heard I think, where faster passages don’t allow the listener to hear subtle nuance but slow it’s all laid out in gory detail.
Rushing is a separate problem too, and we may not all rush for the same reason.
But a slow passage is often harder to nail than the same phrase played faster.
