I saw this quote hanging outside my son’s old preschool the other day. I’m sure it’s been around for a while, but that was the first time I’d seen it! I have mixed feelings about it for some reason… I’ve always liked the saying “practice makes perfect” because it’s inspiring. You can always improve and work toward something. I never thought of it as an unattainable goal, but I see how it could come across that way. The full quote outside the door said “Practice makes progress, not perfect.” To me, that makes it sound like no one can ever perfect their skill. To me, THAT makes it sound unattainable. But I do like the saying “Practice makes progress.” Maybe you haven’t reached perfect (and by that I mean your definition of perfect, not everyone else’s), but you have made progress. I like acknowledging the progress in the process!
I included printables with both variations of the saying. You can choose your preference 😉
