Practice (Doesn’t) Make Perfect

Practice makes perfect.

Benjamin Franklin

We’re driven to try to produce a perfect product. We want the thing we do, sell, or provide to be picture-perfect, and we’re disappointed when it’s not.

What if we stopped for a moment to think about this?

We’re human. We’re not perfect. What makes us think that anything we produce will ever achieve perfection?

So, what if instead of striving to make that flawless product, we just tried our best to make it better? Better than it was when we started. Better than it’s been in the past. Better than it was yesterday.

We can never reach perfect, so why don’t we just keep working to make it better?

Practice doesn’t make perfect. Practice reduces the imperfection.
