Define your idea of perfection. – “I don’t have one.”

I don’t have one.

I have thoughts and plans, hopes and dreams. I write things, draw things. There’s stuff that I can only create in my mind because my mind is less limited by the possible actions of my body and limitations of my environment and the tools I have at hand. The tools of the mind have somewhat more flexibility.

Yet perfection? I don’t know what that is. It would have to be something so far beyond what I can conceive, that I simply can’t. So, I find satisfaction in a limited sense of perfection, coming closer to goals, some vague and unspoken, some written out, and it’s more a sense of satisfaction than perfection, a sense of “yes, this is better than before”.

When I achieve a goal, it’s not perfection but a sense of “I don’t have to concern myself with this now at the moment.” So for me, “This is perfect!” is synonymous with, “I can cross this off my to-do list now.”
