I’ll tell you what, I love writing a good Chai with Sai post. So, it’s time to sit dow with a cuppa because today I’m talking about the need for perfection. It’s not only evident in the blogging world, but it happens in day-to-day life. I hope you guys enjoy today’s post and if you want to check out my last Chai with Sai post you can find it here.
Let’s be honest here, I think most people had it instilled in them that they should always strive for perfection. It’s that continuous strive for perfection that will make you work hard at what you want. It’s like a carrot on a stick. You’re constantly going after it. Until recently, perfection is exactly what I chased after in everything that I did. YouTube videos, blog posts, assignments. Absolutely everything.
I’ve come to the conclusion in the past couple of months though that I’m okay with things not being perfect. Striving for that perfection is stressful. It’s not that I’m work shy, far from it. I work hard for the things that I want and I always have. But what’s the point of having unnecessary stress when there’s absolutely no need for it.
I don’t think perfection is something we should be striving towards. What I think we need to do is to teach people just to work hard to get a job done to the best of your abilities. And that might mean that things don’t end up perfect but that’s okay. They don’t need to be. What matters is that you’ve worked as hard as you are able to. You’ve put the effort in and there’s nothing else that you’re to give. To me, I think that’s something to be extremely proud of.
The thing is, some people will keep working for what they think is perfect and they may even think that they’ve achieved it. Which is great. But I feel at that point, people stop being so humble and there’s no more room for that person to grow. They don’t feel like there’s anything that they could have improved upon and I just feel that people forget about the part of working hard.
Honestly, that’s why I’ve given up trying to make everything perfect. There’s honestly no point for me because nothing can ever be perfect. And even if it could be, I don’t think I would gain anything for things being that. I love growing from the things I’ve done. I love knowing about all the things that could have gone better for me. So, if anything I’m going to be striving away from perfection and see where that takes me.
