Progress, not perfection.

Last night as part of our New Year’s weekend movie blitz we watched The Equalizer with Denzel Washington.  Good movie.  But one phrase from that movie stuck with me.

Progress, not perfection.

A quick Web search found that it is a very popular saying. But when Denzel says it, it rings louder.

It’s a great saying for home brewing. Every time we brew we chase perfection. Prefect sanitation, prefect recipes,  perfect process, perfect water,  perfect temperatures,  perfect everything.  But at the end of the day nothing will ever be perfect. We can shoot for that,  but I think we need to just strive to do a little better than last time and maybe someday that progress will lead us to perfection.

So that’s my motivational tidbit for the day.

Progress,  not perfection.
