The Value of Failure

momofuku:

let’s just say i’m an ‘excellentist’ because perfection is an unattainable goal. perfection isn’t that interesting. it is more interesting to do things with sincerity and a certain quirkiness. with perfection there’s no tolerance for failure, and there are enormous benefits to failure because of the valuable lessons they impart.
