Perfect:  The Enemy of Good

Why is perfect the enemy of good? Think about it. The message of “perfect” is that you’ll someday attain a status beyond which there’s no point of trying, or learning, or growing. If you’re perfect already, what’s the point of interacting with life and getting something out of it?
