Aim for success, not perfection

Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life.”

              ~Dr. David M. Burns


So what’s the big deal about aiming for perfection, anyway?  If you aim for perfection and you fall short of that, you will still do well.  So, isn’t aiming for perfection a good strategy?

 


Dare to be average!”

 

is the title of chapter 14 of Dr. Burns “Feeling Good…” and undoubtedly is one of the most amazing and provocative chapter titles in all the annals of chapterdom! Be that as it may, Dr. Burns explains how you can aim for task perfection but not self-perfection, and still work hard and aim high without putting your self-esteem on the line.
