Perfection Is Overrated

perfection is overrated

“I want to have the perfect job”, “I want to be perfect before I venture into this business”, I want to marry the perfect guy”. Everywhere you go, there is always a constant need for perfection – which somehow we never get to be. It is almost as if we are chasing after shadows.

Now some people will say I have a problem with the idea of perfection, to those people I say “yes, I do”. Perfect simply means without faults, mistake, precisely done etc. Now, you may see where my problem with this word stems from…because the truth is we can never be perfect enough to start anything. Actually, this overwhelming desire to be perfect has led so many into making mistakes that could have been avoided if they were ‘imperfect’.

Have you ever wondered why so many ‘perfect’ marriages end in divorce? Or why so many ‘perfect’ people never get to live that perfect dream of theirs?

The answer is simple-perfection is simply overrated.

This one word is the root cause of depression, low self esteem, procrastination and unfulfilled goals.

Life is a risk, which we must take every day. It is also filled with hurdles and uncertainties. So trying to be perfect in such an imperfect world could be a little bit unsettling. But that’s not a bad thing- because we learn, grow and become stronger and better people as we meet these uncertainties along the way. These uncertainties build in us character and perseverance we won’t learn from waiting around to be perfect.

Great men who have carved a name for themselves in the walls of history were imperfect (they made mistakes and rose above them). Men like John D Rockerfeller, Bill Gates, Stanley Tam, Donald Trump, Robert Kiyosaki, Jan Koum and the likes of them. These are men who were not afraid to make mistakes.

So stop waiting to be perfect before venturing into that business of your dream, or applying for that job you keep talking about. I have learnt in life that there are life lessons taught better through experience. My advice to you is to ‘start doing’.

Stop searching for that perfect spouse because spoiler alert- you are not perfect. The worst marriage is between two perfectionists, because none would be willing to bend over to accommodate the other. The secret to a lasting relationship is commitment and sacrifice.

So friends let’s make a commitment to ourselves to worry less about being perfect and focus more on just doing.
