You don't always have to be perfect. You don't have to be perfect at all. And others don't have to be perfect too. In fact, nobody is ever perfect. There are no perfect people, yes. And since nobody is perfect, nobody can become perfect, so don't strive to become perfect. How many times did I say perfect already? Perfect!
Aiming for perfection is pointless. Even if you want to walk to the Moon by feet, it sounds more real to me than trying to achieve perfection. It's just impossible. So when I write 200 words every day, I remind myself it doesn't have to be a very good, impressive, thoughtful article. It can be as simple as describing what you did today, or what you plan on doing today if you are writing it in the morning.
This piece of writing, as you may have guessed, is not perfect too. Nor is the 200 Words a Day website, nor is the computer you are reading it on, nor the room you are in, nor the city, nor the country, nor this whole world is perfect. Why do smartphones suck so much, but everyone still uses them? All tech kinda sucks. It could be much better... I want to make my own phone. And computer, and my operating system... Why is the choice so limited? I know exactly what I want from the devices I need, and I know it's possible, but everything is heavily affected by marketing, and it sucks. There has to be a different way, a different business model... That's so funny! People create devices that are a bit better than the ones that were in the previous generation but they still remove some cool things so everyone would have to change a lot of stuff in their lives. Sometimes, every year. These devices are INTENTIONALLY imperfect. And you are saying you want to create something perfect now?
