perfect_origOne of my idols, Vince Lombardi, was fond of saying: “Practice does not make perfect.  Only perfect practice makes perfect.”  However, another one of his famous quotes was: “Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence.”  Therefore, it is obvious that Lombardi himself is not perfect in that he states how to become perfect on one quote and then contradicts himself on another quote in that the closest you can get to perfection is actually, ‘excellence’.
