Resilience Or Perfection?

This post is dedicated to Jeremy a true Software champion.
Who do you want on your team? Which of these two kinds of individuals is more essential for your success?

A person who never makes a mistake or someone who is able to recover fast from a mistake?
Yes, if we’re talking about a brain surgeon or a structural engineer please give us a meticulous foolproof track record.  In most of life’s situations though, the ability to bounce back from a mistake is even more essential. Life is full of setbacks, twists and turns. Eight times out of ten, I will take resourcefulness, recoverability and resilience over pedantic or even infallible perfection.
