Consistently striving for anything less than perfection is: A. Fine or B. Lazy
Is stupid an option?
Perfection is the enemy of done.
Not necessarily. Sometimes you have to accept the imperfections of this particular effort, and resolve to do the next effort better, thereby working your way closer to perfection with each completed effort.
But you're still striving for perfection.
Perfectionist to the hilt. And it sucks.
Depending on your abilities do the best you can do, be satisfied
Sure, but the next time out, are you satisfied with last time's 'best,' or do you want to do it better than last time?
Since nothing we do can really be perfect, I think perfection is an unreasonable standard.
But I have a tendency to try to get as close to perfect as I can, when I have the time.
Perfection in many things may be unattainable for many folks.
But are you satisfied with that, or do you keep trying to do [it] a little better each time?
Realistic.. Ideally, you will strive to do the best of your abilities given the time provided. Perfection is a foolish goal in my mind. Covering all angles is a good goal, but perfection seems like you're setting yourself up to be neurotic as well as
I'm not necessarily referencing instant perfection on the first effort.
I'm asking whether it's ok to be satisfied with last time's best effort, instead of striving for a new best every time.
