Participation is more satisfying than perfection. (Ferida Wolff, journalist)
Everybody wants to be a winner, and some work hard to be perfect in their particular pursuit. We’ve all found that winning is really fun, but few are ever satisfied that they’ve reached perfection. Wolff’s suggestion is a great comfort even when you aren’t perfect or haven’t won the contest. There can be a great sense of satisfaction in just participating fully.
And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men. (Colossians 3:23)
