There are two types of progress:

  • Progress you can make toward an end-goal such as a project with a final completion date
  • Progress you can make against an ailment like OCD which you can never fully defeat

Progress is just as good as perfection. In fact, no one ever achieves perfection. They just achieve more and more exactitude.

“I listened, I was aware of my success, but I never stopped trying to get better.” – Michael Jordan

Imperfection is the game of acceptance. If people are flawless, they won’t feel the need to overcompensate for their flaws which is really the catalyst that makes them great in the first place.

Perfection is boring. Imperfections make life more interesting and ambitious. Life should be a beautiful struggle.
