I remember hearing my teacher tell me this and it has been an invaluable lesson. “Perfection is the enemy of done.” That made me think. Hard. Often we strive to be perfect and it drives us nuts because we can never achieve it. I think striving to be the absolute best you can possibly be is a great gift that you can give yourself. However, things get a little bit shaky when you start demanding yourself to be perfect.
I mean even think of a Perfect Game in baseball. It’s not really perfect. Essentially a perfect game would be 9 innings, 3 batters an inning, 3 pitch strikeouts per batter. That would be absolute perfection. And yes I know it’s incredibly hard to throw a perfect game, but still…im making this example to drive a point.
You can be a little bit better, a little bit faster, a bit smarter…
