Long live the flaw

Perfectionism is another word for Stupidity.

Intelligence is always imperfect.

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

  1. If we were perfect we would never be here experiencing our imperfections… All we can do is to try to be the best we can be.. .. Intelligence… now that depends …. I have known many who hold intelligence and yet hold no common sense and so appear stupid!….. and yet there are many who have low IQ’s who show huge signs of Intelligence, because the Use their common sense!…..

    Sue,

    What is alive is imperfect – therfore “perfect”.

    Perfectionism is one of the hardest jobs. It can drive you nuts if you can’t let it go.

      Tell me about that. I have been a victim of it for many years …:(
      First now I begin to deliberately make mistakes…

        Hahaha ……… same with me. To be perfect demands so much life time. First time I realized that some ten years ago when I met the 80-20-rule: you achieve 80 % percent of your aim with only 20 % effort. But perfectionism haunts you all the time. That is to say that you permanently think of improvement. I couldn’t stop critizizing others as well because of their imperfection. Of course, it was only my very own perceivement of others. But I didn’t realize that. I’m still working on it. Buddhist techniques bring the best results within my efforts.

        How did You manage to skip your perfectionism?

        …Acceptance I guess is the key – accepting what is, is accepting oneself…
