It’s time for quote of the month. I know a lot of people have the “perfection” type of spirit and personality since I am one of those people. I pay super close attention to detail and since I, myself, am not perfect, I do tend to miss that odd tiny thing out every once in awhile no matter what it is. Therefore, this month I chose this quote…
Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.
No one is perfect but we can always chase perfection the best we can to excel even further, pushing our limits. It is not easy and everyone knows that but it is kind of like a long term goal. For example, on a photoshoot, you would want to make sure that the make up, hair, clothes, etc. are all perfect so then you would have less retouching/post work to do. Another example, in design, no matter what type of design work, you would want to show your work in the most excellent presentation for your clients and the final product to be perfect so there are no mistakes whatsoever, the spelling is correct, the leading, the kerning, the position of things, etc is all in the right placement.
I know I was ranting on a bit about perfection and all that jazz. It really is not an attainable goal but you can almost get close to achieving near perfection. If perfection actually existed then there would be no room for further improvement and mistakes would not be made. The world is not perfect so it needs room for improvement.
