"I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business."

Michael J. Fox (1961 - ), quoted by Lorne A. Adrain in 'The Most Important Thing I Know'

"Do your best. God will do the rest."

The most dangerous effect of striving for perfection is not that if you fail you deliver  substandard work but it is very much possible that you will become immobile and do nothing thinking that nothing perfect will come out of you. It is irony that it is those sensitive souls who are prone to this perfection syndrome. Those go getters do not care. They just start banging around and somehow generate something close to Homers's 'Odyssey'. We worrying about perfection produce nothing and keep staring when the works of people who did not worry rise up to  win all laurels.

Get started. Do something. Give your best. Excellence is bound to follow sooner or later. Perfection like everything else is in the eyes of the beholder. Many things in life are so hard to judge that even we are not able to determine at the end if what we made came close to our own definition of perfection.

What else is in the eyes of beholder? Beauty is one. Contact lens are also in the eyes of the beholder :)
