Excellence Over Perfection

When we say we value excellence, we must mean that we value the process of excellence. Perfection is an impossible result aimed at by the immature and fearful. Immaturity expects it and the fearful hide behind it. Those that embrace excellence as a process expect mistakes and allow them to shape their learning. Perfection shames mistakes because it is fearful of how they make them look. Zero wins and zero losses is a perfect record without meaning. 9-1 is an excellent record that clearly learned from a loss.
