As the saying goes, perfection is never achieved, but excellence is achieved by striving for it. Excellence does not mean always being right.
It means accepting to try, to fail, to start over, to never been fully satisfied, to not disappoint, to remain honest, to always try to do a little more. It also means recognizing and learning from one’s mistakes, putting things into perspective, taking responsibility, and listening to others and to oneself.
