Unlock Your Creative Ingenuity - Key # 3 - Understanding 'Perfection'

The world we live in equates perfection with success. 'Get it right and you're sure to be at the top of the ladder.' 

In the world of Creatives, however, striving for a standard of flawlessness that borders on perfection will, in my opinion, equate to disappointment, anxiety, dissatisfaction, and eventual loss of originality and vision.

Why not strive for an end result that satisfies our sense of beauty, fantasy, fun, design, and accomplishment. If we can achieve that standard in our work, haven't we reached the point-of-perfection? I can confidently say that because perfection, like beauty, changes depending on the eye of the beholder.

How can you put key #3 to use? What is another way you spell 'Imperfection'?

  1. I would spell imperfection as creative. I have never been one to follow the rules of making something look perfect. I do my best with my creative eye and gut feeling and things turn out pretty good in the end.
    I do want to perfect painting and drawing though one day and I know I'll have the best teachers to show me how.
