Perfect Record

I really liked a recent post by Raam, whose blog I have been following since 4+ years. Publishing it here as a GUEST POST with his permission.

You don’t need to have a perfect record. You just need to show up more times than you don’t. If you can’t remember the last time you didn’t show up, that’s good enough.

Time erases imperfections when something greater outshines them.

Nobody has a perfect record of walking–we all slip and fall down at some point. Yet nobody thinks about that (unless it’s you and you just slipped), because something greater–getting back up–outshines the act of falling down.

You don’t need to have a perfect record. You just need to show up more times than you don’t. And if you haven’t shown up in awhile, that’s okay too.

Imperfections in time are erased by consistency in movement towards perfection.

Nobody has a perfect record of brushing their teeth–we all miss a day at some point. Yet nobody thinks about that (unless it’s you and your teeth are scuzzy), because something greater–brushing your teeth regularly–outshines the act of missing it.

An imperfect record becomes one that appears perfect when you consistently apply the act of choosing to work towards perfection. When and how are not important. All that matters is choosing to act.

Don’t forget to check out Raam’s beautiful blog. 🙂

  1. Imperfect record should be used as negative feedback to put more effort whereas perfect record should be used to reduce the effort so that one has time to enjoy life. One should have a balance in life, so feedback should be used like a negative loop in electronics circuits to achieve stability.
