Perfection is Not Real
Perfection is not real. Subconsciously though, I believed it was. School teaches that there is a perfect way to do things. That you can get 100% on a test.
Is there a perfect essay? Or a perfect book? Is there a perfect piece of software? Or a perfect house? Is there a perfect life?
Paul Kalanithi highlights the concept of perfection well.
“You can’t ever reach perfection, but you can believe in an asymptote toward which you are ceaselessly striving” - Paul Kalanithi
