LIFE IS STILL TERRIFIC EVEN WHEN IT'S NOT PERFECT
If you wait around for everything to be perfect before you enjoy life, you will miss out on all the good things life has to offer. If you listen to the message perfection whispers in your ear, frustration and disappointment become unwelcome guests who never go away.
When you stop and think about it, you realize that excellence beats perfection by a million miles. The reason is simple. Perfection is impossible and never happens. On the other hand, excellence is not only possible, it’s your constant companion as you walk the path to your dreams.
I have not had a perfect life, nevertheless, I had an excellent one. I never had a perfect job, but I had a couple of good ones. I never had perfect children, but I had two terrific ones. I never had a perfect wife, but I had an outstanding one. I never had perfect parents, but they were always there when I needed them, and they sacrificed to make my life better than theirs had been. I never had a perfect sailboat, but I have sailed thousands of miles on the ocean of my dreams. I don’t live in a perfect world, but it’s an excellent one.
Even if perfection was possible, it wouldn’t be worth the effort. The planning and execution of a perfect trip around the world would require a ten thousand page script, a cast of thousands, and billions of dollars to make it happen. When the trip was over, you would still find dozens of reasons why it wasn’t perfect.
On the other hand, an excellent trip around the world is easily within your grasp. You can hike it or bike it. You can sail it or fly it. You can do it on a shoestring or in opulent luxury. It all comes down to how much time and money you are wiling to invest in your excellent adventure.
That’s the way everything is in life. Perfection is impossible, but excellence is always within your grasp and is more than worth the effort. An average walk in the park is still pretty good. It doesn’t matter if you’re eight or eighty years old, riding a bicycle down a big hill is still great fun. When you escape from perfection, you learn there are no ordinary moments. Each one is as special as you make it.
