Nobodys Perfect


Being human is being fallible. Evolution determines that we all are naturally different. The one constant in our lives and nature is that things will change. A feature or solution that seemed perfect a moment ago isn't now - because everything is constantly changing to solve current problems. Perfection cannot be achieved because of change.

This doesn't mean we can't accomplish things, all we need to do is what's good enough, accept that things can never be perfect and then move on.

The aim to be perfect stops people finishing undertakings, and also prevents them even starting. Their endeavor to do something perfectly necessities repetitive attention and tweaking. Their impossible standards mean that they need to spend forever to finish something. The fear of not being able to complete something perfectly prevents them starting.

The thing to remember is that no one is perfect. You don't need to be a perfect skier to enjoy and start skiing. Everyone starts somewhere. Place one foot in front of the other and complete one step at a time.

However minor your achievements, your brain and nervous system will remember the steps you have taken and will act to improve future steps.

You can feel proud that you did something rather than nothing and have dared to live.
