What’s the difference between excellence and perfection? And which one are you aiming for?
This has been a key theme that’s arisen in my coaching sessions lately – the battle between the two. When is your own or someone else’s work good enough? And how do you know?
Excellence vs. Perfection:
– One is attainable; the other is not.
– One brings you a sense of accomplishment; the other leaves you feeling as if you’re not good enough.
– When you strive for perfection, you’re not content – even if your outcomes are excellent.
Which of these would serve you best as you go through your day, and which do you strive for the most? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this important topic.
