People call these things imperfections, but they’re not. Aw that’s the good stuff. And then we get to choose who we let in to our weird little worlds.
Robin Williams, Good Will Hunting
When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.
Better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing flawlessly.
Dr. Robert Schuller
If you wait for everything to be perfect according to your preconceived plan, then you may well wait forever. If you go out and work with the current of life, you may find that success comes from building upon small things.
The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials.
Amateurs train until they get it right. Professionals train until they never get it wrong.
Despite being sport-related this quote is important to everyone!
Think about it: When you learn for something or train for something, what is your goal? Your goal is to get it right. That is a good goal, but it does not help much because when someone asks you if you could you do it, you will hestitate and think to yourself: “Hmm I’ve done it once, but can I do it now? Here? In front of people?” BAM! You lost. Right there.
That is why pros train for never getting it wrong! That’s when you know you get it right every damn time and you can proudly say: “I can do that!”
This should be your goal!
