On Being Perfect

Perfect. It sounds good.

Who doesn't want to be perfect? We revere people who have achieved perfection in sports, music, business, and so forth - but what about me? I want to be perfect. Notice I didn't say I wanted to achieve perfection - I just want to BE perfect.

And so I am. One of the realizations I have had with old age is this: If you can't logically achieve something, modify what it is that you are trying to achieve. What? It's this simple. I want to be perfect at something - and I already am. I am perfect at being IMperfect, and therefore AM perfect at SOMETHING.

Well, my work here is done!
