Sure, you can chase perfection and convince yourself that it’s a noble cause.
But perfection is impossible to attain this side of heaven.
What is better is doing things to the best of your ability.
We should focus on the process of doing our work or our mission and not the outcome.
Five jobs complete at 80% perfection is far more valuable than doing one of those jobs at 95% perfection.
You got five jobs done while "Mr. Perfection" struggled with one job (and still isn’t happy because it’s only at 95%).
So give it your best effort, make your best effort better, and have no worries about the results. Perfection doesn’t exist, but hard work does.
