We Should Aim for Perfection — and Stop Fearing Failure | Jon Bowers

Typo squatting was discussed by Jon Bowers in this video. Typo squatting are typographical errors made by internet users when inputting a website address in a web browser. It is a URL hijacking which is a form of cyber-squatting. He runs a training facility for professional delivery drivers. One hundred people die every day in the United States in car accidents. You fail his test if a word is misspelled, a comma is missing. He is a perfectionist and expects nothing but that. He does daily uniform checks, if your uniform is wrinkled you get sent home. He expects you to be to work on time, go to lunch on time and come back from lunch on time. Failure is a natural stepping stone to perfection, stop fearing failure. According to Mr. Bowers, if doctors just tried their best, more people would die during surgery, babies would be given to the wrong parents, prescriptions would be messed up. No one is perfect, but it seems like the value of perfection has stopped. He expects his drivers to be perfect on the road. To make sure all crossings, streets are clear before they drive. Medical errors are the third leading cause of deaths in the United States each year. Mr. Bowers also has his drivers memorize a 131 word defensive driving program and rewrite it. You mess up while rewriting it you fail.

Key Points:

  • 1In the digital age, even a single typo can sometimes cause not just expensive damage, but widespread disruptions.
  • 2The drive for absolute perfection can get in the way of doing a good job, and prevent any form of success.
  • 3A more healthy attitude toward perfection would be to honestly give your best effort, and be ready to make corrections in a calm manner.
