I read a motivational quote recently that stated that we should all strive for continuous improvement, instead of looking to be perfect. I felt uplifted by that, yet as I reflected on it, I could not understand how to apply it to life. Who decides what can be labeled "improvement"? What degree of improvement is enough? How do we aim for improvement if we aren't striving to be perfect? I don't want to make mistakes. I want to be the best person that I can be. I want others as well as myself to succeed, but I have more understanding when others mess up than I am on myself. I know that rationally no one nor anything can be perfect yet that is what I want for myself.
