Done is better than perfect

Or is it perfect because it is done? The word “perfection” derives from the Latin “perfectus,” which in turn comes from “perficio” — “to finish,” “to bring to an end.” Perfection thus literally means “to finish.” So in that sense, done is equal to perfect! The oldest definition of perfection is attributed to Aristotle. He distinguished three meanings of the term, or rather three shades of one meaning.

THAT IS PERFECT:
1. which is complete — which contains all the requisite parts;
2. which is so good that nothing of the kind could be better;
3. which has attained its purpose.
