Have you ever wondered what is perfection?
Is Mozart perfect? If you don’t know yet, the best musician in the history of mankind died at age 35. Can we imagine if he could live till an older age? How much more joy can we get out of his creations. How much higher the standard of music could be for today’s musicians.
Neil deGrasse Tyson, a famous astrophysicist (basically an outerspace expert), once gave a very interesting explanation of the infinite potential of us. The DNA difference between human and our closest relatives, the chimpanzees, is less than 2%. Chimpanzees most advanced skills is probably using twigs to fish ants out of the antholes and using rocks to crack open fruits. Whereas, a human has the ability to fly ourselves to the moon and even launch space objects all the way out of the solar system. Imagine, what can we achieve if our DNA can be engineered just 2% more of what we are now. The possibilities are endless.
Don’t get it wrong that if perfection is not attainable, then probably we should not give our best. Although we will never achieve perfection, we should still give our best into what we are doing. Don’t deprive the world of the next Mozart or Leonardo Da Vinci.
Just don’t forget to have a little fun along the way on your pursuit of perfection.
