What does it take to reach “perfection”?
Of course there is no such thing as “perfect”, perfection is unreachable, but how can we target it, and try to get as close as possible to it? The IA has taught me to seek for perfection, and I have; in fact I’m craving for it, not because Mr. Bon told me to, but because I want to succeed, I want to have the best version of myself possible. But again, there is a difference between craving for perfection and working for it. So my question is, what’s the formula to achieve perfect? After thinking and reflecting for a few minutes, I came up with a few concepts, which I believe that are what lead to perfection.
worthless. Give feedback; we might as well learn to criticize, seek for perfection in other’s work. If you don’t give honest and to the point feedback to help others grow, then who will help you grow? Trust flows both ways.
Don’t limit yourself. Don’t work to for a top mark, give more, exceed expectations. If you set yourself a bar, then you are putting yourself a barrier, limiting yourself. You will always be able to do better, that’s why we should not be setting ourselves expectations or conforming ourselves with good, we shall work as hard as we can. I don’t think there is a more rewarding feeling than to be able to say “I gave it all, and I succeeded”. Push yourself as hard as you can, because you can go as far as you let yourself.
I can conclude by saying that though perfection doesn’t exist, still it is a way to measure how far can we go. It’s a way to achieve the best version of ourselves as possible.
