Perfection can infect anything that we endeavor to undertake. One slip up and the perfect streak is lost, ruined, and then it can feel incredibly compelling to just give up. It’s ultimately easier to do so. And giving up in such a way has a conclusive finality to it that can even be reassuring.
But an opportunity would be missed. One that exercises the ability to say ‘screw it, I’m going to keep going anyway. On time or not.”
Practicing this is potentially vital, because when the time comes along when something truly important is suffering in a similar way, we are well practiced, and getting it done late saves us from the forever guilt of never.
No one ever says or hears that never is better than late.
Our colloquialism is the other way around.
We benefit most, not from being on time but with consistently trying.
