Perfection is an illusion

On your journey to being accepted into a top drama school, the pressure to be perfect will show itself many times.

As you work monologues to within an inch of their life, fill out application after application and chase down the quality recommendations, it will be easy to think that If you could just get this task or that task perfect, then you will attain the thing you want so badly.

It is important that you recognize this impulse, understand what it is worth and make a different, more sustainable choice.

The work and the process that you cultivate is the true catalyst to your success; Perfection is an illusion.

Perfection implies an end result. That is to say there is a destination; a place where you will end up and feel as though you have made it or that you are somehow done working.

The truth is, the work never ends.
