Excellence Over Perfection
Practice makes perfect. That’s what we always hear since we were a child and perfection is what we always try to achieve.
I stopped believing in perfection and started believing in excellence and here’s why.
It is impossible to reach perfection, it’s an end state and somewhere we will never be since every day, every minute and every second of our living lives, we evolve, learn and grow.
What’s achievable every moment though is excellence. It is doing and achieving everything at our level best, meaning we do what we can and the best that we can offer at the moment.
This for me removes the stress of being perfect and doing everything perfectly.
Do you do everything perfectly or excellently?
