Any one here is a perfectionist? Today we’ll learn a Chinese idiom that speaks the kind of attitude that a perfectionist would have towards anything he or she does. Literally Chinese idiom 精益求精 jīng yì qiú jīng means to improve on already good enough accomplishment. 精 jīng means “perfect”, 益 yì means “more”, 求精 qiú jīng means “improve on perfection”.
It is actually a quite positive word. It is always used on people that are not satisfied with the accomplishment they’ve got, and want to do more and better. For your Chinese study, you should too, don’t you? :-)
Sometimes, the usage of 精益求精 jīng yì qiú jīng could also imply the intention to go extreme, which is not encouraged.
Now I’ll show you how to use it in real life sentences …
zài yánfā de guòchéng zhōng, zhǐyǒu jīngyìqiújīng cáinéng qǔdé tūpò xìng de chéngguǒ.
In the process of research and development, break-through result can only be achieved via continual pursuit of perfectionism.
tā zuòshì de tàidu guòyú jīngyìqiújīng.
His attitude towards his work is overly perfectionism.
What is your attitude towards your own business, 精益求精? Or more leisure. Feel free to leave your practice on this idiom in the comment area.
Have yourself a peaceful night!
