Perfection is an interesting concept and sometimes it serves us and sometimes it doesnâ€™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 â€“ and then it gets magical â€“ mistakes and all.
Perfecting your craft so you can duplicate perfectly whatâ€™s been done before isnâ€™t all that interesting.
Perfecting your craft so youâ€™re good enough to transcend the work and create something brilliant is something beyond perfection.
