Perfection is...
a worthy goal.
 
Perfection is...
attainable...
 
at least in one's discipline.

Although there is the possibility
of making occasional mistakes...
 
with constant practice...
the vast majority of that which is 
diligently practiced can be performed 
flawlessly.

It is only when people think that
perfection means to be perfect
in everything at all times
that it is incorrect.
 
To say that no one is perfect...
when one fails...
or especially before one has to perform...
is an excuse for oneself
to not have to strive for it...
as it is easier to say something is impossible to achieve
and so...
not have to put in herculean efforts...
to achieve.

A professional musician must perform flawlessly
time and again on stage.

They were able to reach perfection on those
practiced pieces...
time and again...
because of repetitiously...
and perfectly practicing their art.

In life
there are...
of course...
unknown and uncontrolled variables.
 
Through thorough practice of the basics...
the fundamentals...
one may then be able to handle 
most problems without the need to think
as they become a natural reflex.

Without the need to start all problems anew...
as most problems will fall into the standards of the basics...
the brain can devote itself to the anomalies
with greater ease.

To get frustrated at the inability to perform 
perfectly in one's chosen discipline
without appropriate amounts of 
perfect practice
is wrong...
not the idea of perfection itself.

Start out slowly...
break down the basics into
easily digestible bites...

move on only when one gets 100% of the problems...
understand the fundamental concepts...
with pure repetition...
over time...

I say...

one cannot help but achieve...

Perfection...
(in one's discipline)
