Imperfection

We are all of us flawed, imperfect. And we know it. But we act as if every missstep is unforgivable, the sign of some deep-rooted character flaw. Mistakes are impossible to admit, they have such dark significance. Errors are not tolerated. Well, maybe once, but don't make the same mistake again. And a third one, that's it! Grounds for dismissal.

Such arrogance! To think that we are so close to perfection, that we have a right to demand such performance.

We need 100 tries to get it right. And if we can't get it right in 100 tries, we need to see what's wrong with the procedure. Do our processes serve us or the other way around?

and Achieving All Your Goals at the Same Time
