why be perfect?

Perfect is in-human. Machines are perfect. Machines are replaceable, each one is exactly, perfectly the same.

And yet, at one time or another, I’d be willing to bet that we’ve all worried about not being perfect. Who convinced us that perfect was something we should all be striving for? The search for perfect will leave you afraid to fail, and therefore afraid to do anything new, and quite possibly afraid to do anything at all. If you stay home, nobody will know how imperfect you are, which is, in and of itself, perfect.

Humans aren’t suppose to be perfect. We are a living, breathing and EVOLVING species. Evolution does not reward perfection. It is a never ending process of improved upon imperfections embracing the ability to change and adapt, and leaving all those stuck on being perfect, behind.

Perhaps what we should really be afraid of is perfection… Waiting for it might as well be a death sentence.
