In your pursuits, gauge your efforts to a level YOU are proud of. Seek NOT to reach perfection . . . for you will assuredly fail. Make your standard be that of “excellence”, which you will know and feel in your heart once you’ve reached it and keep in mind an axiom attributed to author Scott Allen, which plasters the walls at Facebook‘s headquarters (and has been its mantra throughout its existence) . . .
So strive toward a standard of excellence (NOT perfection) in all that you do. If you do, you will surely shine . . . shine your way.
