I realize that this precept may be controversial and even heretical to those who believe in some divine plan for mankind. There is a divine plan but it is so simple it flies over the heads of the majority of mankind. The plan is—there is no plan, only the one you create.

At this point it would be wise to re-read Precepts #1 & 2. Every choice has a cost or consequence.

Precept #7

Mortals can’t be perfect. We are not designed that way. You might say this by definition. Only God (however you define it) is perfect.

When mortals try to be perfect the result will be nothing but problems and potential disaster. Why? There is an old Greek saying that explains why the path of perfection for mortals leads to disaster. It is: for whom the Gods will destroy they first make overconfident. When individuals are overconfident they charge ahead oblivious to the dangers and crosscurrents that await. In other words, they are oblivious to the consequences (risks) of their actions (precept #1).

While mortals can not be perfect they can be better. As Ben Franklin noted centuries ago—best is the enemy of better.
