The thing about perfect

Perfection is an interesting concept and sometimes it serves us and sometimes it doesn’t.

For example when a musician spends their life perfecting their craft to be able to play the music perfectly with note-to-note accuracy it is mostly boring and without soul.

But then there are those musicians who treat the perfection of their instrument as merely a stepping stone to the next level where they then have the skill to play from their soul with the notes nothing more than a guideline – and then it gets magical – mistakes and all.

Perfecting your craft so you can duplicate perfectly what’s been done before isn’t all that interesting.

Perfecting your craft so you’re good enough to transcend the work and create something brilliant is something beyond perfection.
