Standards

I’m often very critical on things I see. Normally I can always point out some flaws of them and how they can improve from them.

However, the reason why products, services or any other commercial goods we see have flaws is simply the result of an imperfect production, and perfection is a hard requirement for most people.

It has something to do with my OCD, I’m a perfectionist. I pursue perfection.

Let’s say I see a jelly gel, it tastes fine, but it can do better on its marketing and overall quality, expiration date etc.

But the company of this jelly gel does not consider the possibility of perfecting this product. Because it’s not a mandatory need.

What it happens is that, in our common life, many things come with standards/requirements, but they are not very high individually.

It’s always a mixture of different standards that makes it a hard feat to achieve.

Canada labor market, something I just researched.

The job market in Canada requires you some “basic” or “general” requirements. Let’s say Canadian Experience, something seems most employers require when an immigrant or a foreign worker seeks for a job.

It’s definitely basic on its own term, the experience. If you stay at the country or born here, you will have that experience somehow.

They only require this thing at a basic level, higher than that, they don’t care.

It’ll be fine if they only ask for this, this will be much easier for immigrants to achieve.

But it’s not the case, the reason why it’s hard is that it does not only require you for a “Canadian Experience”, it also requires you for a Canadian education, great language skills, and whether your job would have an impact on the labor market of Canada.

Other jobs for example. A technician job, a web developer job.

You can have basic understanding of this subject and you can accept offers. But that does not make great work.

It’s just, in our world, people just accept generally mundane things. Sometimes even it’s garbage, they still accept them. Because not many people have high appreciation of things.

And this gives opportunities and chances for people who can only, like, do well, but not great.

And people’s ability of recognizing capable people is troublesome, great artists only flourish in front of a certain group of eyes, not the public. Unless you commercialize them, push them to the market and get judged by the public.

Well if we are going to circle the thing back to commercialization, that would be an older post of mine.
