On the Road to Perfection

I saw a facebook post ( the place where you can find things that piss you off, but also where you can find inspiration.) and it had an inspiratonal message until the last line. The last line was "don't strive for perfection, strive for progress." 

I see what they are trying to say but I don't totally agree.  To me this is saying it is OK to just progress and you really shouldn't try to be perfect.  I say that while you are trying to be perfect you will progress.  I agree we should all make progress.  Every day is a chance to get better with progressions.  I don't think the goal should to progress alone.  There needs to be a goal.  You need something to progress towards.  I lift weights to get stronger so I can progress to a heavier weight so I can break PRs and become the strongest I can be striving for my perfect lift.

As I go after this goal I make progress.  I don't understand progress for progress sake.  Ultimately you do not need to be perfect but you should strive to be the closest to it that you can.  This is where the strong surpass others.  This is where successful people become successful.  When you are just focusing on progress and not striving for perfection, the person who is will succeed before you. 

On the Road to Perfection you will find EXCELLENCE!
