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.

As long as you’re learning

You may not be in the right spot. You may feel like others are progressing faster. You may feel the need to quit and start anew.

But as long as you’re learning, you should think twice about giving up. Education is an invaluable resource. Technology is accelerating so fast today you have no choice but to adapt and stay on top of the latest developments.

If you have access to the right tools and use them to your advantage it’s almost impossible to fall back. Learning is a choice. You may feel stuck in work title but this is exactly the moment to polish the edges, to strengthen your work with facts and new ideas.

Your day will come, and you’ll be more prepared than the rest of them. You’ll also be just as busy. Never lose your sense of wonder.

Progress is not an illusion; it happens, but it is slow and invariably disappointing.
