The Perfectionist

26 Jul

I always loved perfect things, perfect actions, perfect work, perfect people. It was always a hellish experience for me to find something wrong and worry over that endlessly. All that has changed now with a few personal experiences where I couldn’t get what I wanted. Realising how important and enjoyable it was in appreciating the good things, has made me much more comfortable buying things. Those things which I would have never brought if perfection was the criteria to buy them.

As they say that to “err is human” and to expect “perfection” (the meaning of which itself has been subject to a lot of research and studies) is good but should not become a reason not to enjoy what we have or create. In most cases perfection is just what we perceive which might change from person to person.

    It’s enough if you take care of the basic grammar. That would save us a lot of torture! Thanks!

    Striving for perfection is not a mistake. But missing other important things which are not perfect but are good and even better is losing a lot.

    One may not be perfect at any given time that is what I believe. Just give ur posts two or three readings. This will solve at least 60% of ur and the reader’s problems.

    Aala Santhosh Reddy brings up a very valid point yet all some can do is bag his grammar? I personally thought he put his views forward very well.
    Why is it, that many people on the net seem to think tearing people to shreds or some nasty reply is so important?
    Give people a break.

    Back to the topic at hand….applying the DL method or similar to tests. I’m not 100% but I do think that the ICC is looking into something similar to the DL method they can use in the case of test match washouts.
    Maybe you should send your points to the ICC. I guess we cricket fans tend to assume the ICC know it all and have thought of it all before but there may be something they haven’t taken into consideration. Won’t hurt to email them anyway.

    Thanks Lee for your kind words. Yes, I am sure ICC would have thought about applying a method to decide the outcomes of Test Matches.

    In the Indian Ranji League, teams are awarded points based on their performance.
