Excellent video!

The very words perfect & perfection have done a great deal of damage to me. Over the years I have learned to put forth my best effort and do the best I can to learn from my mistakes. I also believe that when one wants to accomplish a goal, one finds the time to work at said goal until it has been achieved. Thank you so much for posting this video.

I need to watch things like this every once in a while to remind me that I don't have to get things perfect, and to just move along. I am not a procrastinator but I am a big perfectionist. Thanks for posting this video and for not waiting till it was perfect! :)

Thank you

Thanks for letting me k;now that I don't have to be perfect. Some times we just have to be reminded. We try to be perfect but we all fall short of the glory of God. I love how you gave the example of what God said at the creation. It gave me a whole new perspective on life.

encouraging message

Thanks Dr. Dave, I tend to get overwhelmed by the things I need to do, especially when a lot is happening around me. My brain sort of short circuits and shuts down. This has encouraged me to just start moving and not feel guilty about not getting it all done. Now I'm off to do what you say!

Thank you for this excellent video that reminded me to stop procrastinating and just organize as best as possible rather than perfectly.

Look at it like this

I always think about what Dr. Dave said; about God creating the world. He could've created it any way He wanted to.
He chose to create humans. Imperfect, flawed fallible humans.
He could've created us perfect if He wanted to, and He didn't.
You know what that means? That means He WANTS us to be imperfect. Striving for, and accepting only perfection is rebelling against God. God didn't want perfect.
He wanted good. He wanted VERY good.
He may just have wanted the BEST you, you can be.
That's still not perfect and it's never going to be, and
that's how He wants it to be, and
that's good enough.

Thanks Dr Dave for you stellar advice. I have reflected recently that, as you often don't know whether you can do/not do something, whether you actually believe you can/ cannot do it is a choice. So why not make the one that calls to your higher nature? :)
