Excellence & Perfection


Recommended Posts

I used to think of myself as a bit of a perfectionist, & I would beat myself up about stuff for no good reason. I've mellowed with age, I think,like a good wine.


I came across this the other day & found it helpful. I concluded I would much rather go for excellence than perfection. I hope you'll find it as helpful as I did!

Thanks for that Weightman,


I'll never call myself a perfectionist again, I don't like what it says about me. :o


Here's to excellence or at least ( or is it 'at most') I'll do the best I can. :D

That's a good comparison, sometimes I seek perfection, but rarely ever achieve it, sometimes I strive for perfection but rarely every achieve it and sometimes I have to accept that I will never ever be perfect or excellent.
