Redefining perfect

No design is done. No blog or Tweet is ever flawless. No sonnet is ever complete.

Because it’s never perfect.

We build off the history that has come before us. Raise the bar and the standard for those who come after.

If what we are striving for is perfection and, yet, never achieved, then shouldn’t we redefine what perfect is?

Perfect is according to spec. Perfect is what we need in the moment, in the now. Perfect is having the device work the way we want it to.

And what we can strive for is solving a problem we don’t even know exists yet.

Until then, let’s hope that things like pacemakers and traffic lights keep working perfectly.
