Sport ist Mord | Samuel Koch | TEDxUniMannheim
Victory over oneself | NARMANDAKH Dondov | TEDxDarkhan
As a former gymnast, perfection is the highest claim. Perfection in every single movement from hairline to toe. Even when severely injured you keep on going as if nothing happened. I am a perfectionist. And yet I believe that it is not perfection that makes the world a better place. Because perfection doesn’t create much impact. The not-so-perfect may cause problems here and there, but also teaches us how to deal with them. So, does learning to endure and manage the imperfection help us live better than never ending pursuit of perfection?
