2017 EDU: TKR: If it is not perfect yet, perfect your tolerance for imperfection

If it is not perfect yet, 
perfect your tolerance for imperfection
In this short excerpt from Tiffany Dufu's event, Dufu urges women to embrace imperfection, to expect less of themselves and more from others. Only then can they focus on what they truly care about, devote the necessary energy to achieving their real goals, and create the type of rich, rewarding life we all desire.
