The Imperfection Pot

I've been fascinated by this Imperfection Pot since I came across it last week. 

This description is killer:

This Imperfection Pot was made with a free hand which has resulted in the appearance of subtle flaws. Rather than ruin it, these imperfections are the key to its charm...

In the race for efficiency, perfection is sought. No errors. No screw ups. No mistakes. Make something, make it perfect, repeat.

That's fine for software or mass produced home goods, but doesn't apply to people. After all, when meeting someone or growing in relationship and community with others, you learn that like this pot, "these imperfections are the key to its (his, her) charm."

Perfect is not the point. Progress is.
