The lessons we learn are written on the tombstones of others.
How do you think they thought of their training? I doubt they called it "perfection" or searched to seek such a fairy tale claim.
The goal is to strive for survival.
My guess is that you aren't a fan of the Glock slogan LOL.
I wonder if it really does any good to nitpick this much.
We strive for survival. The way I know how to survive is through the best training possible. So if I strive to be perfect in my response to the threat at hand, its saying I'm attempting to be perfect in my execution of that training. So my strive for perfection is one and the same with striving for survival. After all my training is done to give me a better chance at survival.
