The main thing we crave when while we are watching this amazing advert is an imperfection. All that magic that makes us hold our breath has to do with the fact that something can go wrong. If that risk didn’t exist, it would be boring.
Every morning you have two choices:
You can be the impeccable type of person that knows everything and gets it all right, that exudes excellence and never disappoints.
Or you can be interesting. The kind of person that surprises everybody, the early adopter, the one that takes risks.
The perfectionist walks securely along a linear path, without potholes or blockages. The interesting person improvises his journey, discovers short cuts and is not afraid of running out of petrol. He knows that if it were to happen someone would stop, and meeting that ‘someone’ may end up being the best part of the trip.
Perfectionism is doubly dangerous: it impedes us from learning (because we usually learn from our mistakes) and it drives us away from our true goals (because we focus on unimportant details rather than on the global aspect of what we want to achieve).
There is nothing more limiting than perfectionism. The fear of making mistakes or of being “one more among the crowd” doesn’t allow you to try new things and, in some cases, to discover hidden talents. Behind your mistakes there are countless fascinating new worlds waiting for you.
“Don’t be afraid of perfection, you will never reach it”, said Dalí. Perfect is he who doesn’t do anything, who is still, who stays quiet. No one is like that; neither are you. You are imperfect. Congratulations! Enjoy it.
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget the perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything,
that´s how the light gets in.
