This talk changed my life I hope it changes yours too (for better). We often think that being a machine, or being perfect is the ultimate stage of human kind. However, Guy Hoffman (almost) obliterate this concept. And in one of my favourite talks he makes us reinvent our definition of what we should aim. Maybe we shouldn’t only spend all our time striving for getting better and better but also realize what we have achieved and how mistakes are important. So after this talk (I’ve seen it one year ago, thus I don’t quite remember it deeply) I stopped asking for me to be perfect but to move towards that goal always looking to the errors has opportunities for improvement and for new ways of thinking. More than this I comprehended that emotions are needed for arriving perfection…and you, what have you learnt?

Life would had no meaning if we erased emotions, it would had no purpose. I wish you all the best and seek for your “soul” everyday 😀
