Life is perfectly imperfect.  We humans like the idea of #perfection in our lives, and for many that leans heavier in their workplace.  I know from experience that being perfect in one’s job, to complete all the tasks and not have any mistakes, would bring satisfaction to the worker and their leadership.  However, there is usually not enough time or care put in the workplace structure to embrace flaws, as a way of growing a company and improving the wellbeing of their employees, and thus creating a type of “perfect” place to enjoy their work. 

It’s natural for us to strive for #perfection in our careers, so we can attain what we feel is the ideal situation for which we can celebrate victories in our employment.  “When is ‘good enough’ an acceptable goal?” (Andrew Scott).  I believe an acceptable goal of what can be perceived being perfect, is when one takes a step back and knows in their heart that the concept has been reached, and nothing more needs to be done.

#Perfection is an opinion.  One person’s sense of completion is another person’s head tilt with, “Umm, maybe I need to tweak it in a different way.”  Thus it isn’t perfect.  Maybe the tweak is necessary and maybe it isn’t.  Is every human’s point-of-view perfect?  We can strive for #perfection, whatever that meaning is for those who desire to embrace it.  Yet, I see perfection in the beauty of a sunset, the smile of child and the perfectly imperfect world we live in.
