Strive for continuous improvement instead of perfection. (Kim Collins, Olympic athlete)

Olympic athletes work hard and long to improve their skills. Only rarely does one receive a perfect 10. It’s really difficult to be perfect in anything—using proper grammar, word choices, hitting the right notes, remembering your cues, etc. We should all strive for excellence, improving along the way, and providing an example of perseverance for others to follow.

I don’t mean to say that . . . I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me (Philippians 3:12).
