We seek an impossibility
To our distraction…
We can’t get no perfection
And, no…we can’t even
Get no satisfaction…
It’s no more than an ideal
But striving is what it’s about
And so we go…seeking
The impossible dream

      Depends on the dream, eh? This isn’t to say we should do less than our best in everything. But even ole Martha Stewart couldn’t attain perfection, and I’m sure it drove her crazy. LOL

        That’s why we have the expression…”Perfection is the enemy of the good,” which is why when some seek sudden change and won’t accept incremental change, I think they’re nuts. A hurricane or tornado brings sudden change, but it’s far from a good thing. Usually better to change what’s possible now and don’t give up on pushing the ball ahead. Pardon my sports metaphor. LOL
