Perfection is not only impossible, because perfection is nothing but an illusion. What defines perfection? Society? Your friends? Your family? There is no group that can label you and your abilities but you. To be perfect would mean you never made a mistake. Nobody ever accomplished anything without first making a mistake or two to find the way through to the real discoveries. Perfection never invented anything but advertising campaigns. Our schools put all students into the same square box of activities and have them strive for the perfection of an A. How many talented, intelligent and creative people leave our educational system each year feeling worse about themselves then when they entered? Perfection is an illusion. Forget being perfect, embrace your imperfection and realize that it is actually your strength and will in the end bring you more than perfection could ever fathom.
