I have heard people say that we must seek progress, not perfection. They say we cannot attain perfection as no one is perfect. I am not so sure about that. Those who pursue personal excellence seek progress . Those who aim for mastery, practice for perfection.
And I see why seeking for progress is simpler and easier. Perfection is not for everyone. But everyone can become better. Everyone can seek progress.
You do not have to overstretch yourself. You do not have to over-stress yourself. Make baby steps to progress. Eventually, you’ll grow into a better person. And maybe, if you live long enough, you’ll grow into perfection.
Make progress. Accomplish something today.
