My Perfect World

Perfection is personal...

Everything we set out to achieve does not have a singular outcome; the satisfactory result is achieved if it falls within the range
like... the best sprinter seeks to achieve first place, if possible breaks record
like... the Michelin (chef) Master achieving recognition for being the best in culinary skills in say, French, Italian or Chinese food; seldom recognized as the best in any/every type of cooking
like... an economic growth of 16% and a growth rate of 5% is still a growth 

We must do our best and be the best but not necessarily perfect; perfection is, like an ideal, a moving target
if... everyone has a perfect look, cosmetic surgeons will be in the annals like the dodo 
if... there is one acceptably perfect GOD, there wouldn't be/have many religions
if... there is a perfect country, we needn't still think of Utopia 

There is no monopoly of knowledge nor solutions
as... the rich will not understand what hunger is
as... the elite cannot accept why others are 'mediocre'
as... seemingly brilliant people turned terrorists in the name of a certain Beliefs

“To understand that hardship is a matter of fate and success is a matter of the times; and to able to face enormous difficulties without fear or terror is to have the courage of a sage.” 知穷之有命,知通之有时,临大难而不惧者,圣人之勇也。Confucious
... everyone is given a chance to succeed, within his abilities and capabilities, but few know nor grab when opportunity knocks
... some succeeded but succumbed to greed, emphathy or plain arrogance
... only in fairy tales do we find perfectly happy ending 
 ...everyone needs some space in this crowded Earth

We are walking on the sands of time and nothing will be remembered as we passed and time passes
Do whatever you want, within your abilities and capabilities, and achieve fame and glory
Your little empire and ivory tower is yours to built and keep

Blaming others for your misfortune or setback is not a solution
If you can't dictate changes, be the change agent

Make your decision to change for the better NOW or tomorrow will be the same or worse as you resist the change agents dwelling inside you

If you don't give yourself a chance, NO one will
... forever you will be humbled, thumbed-down and enslaved

What is graffiti to some, is arts to others; fashion, like arts, is personal
