For Kant, the actions toward fulfillment of one’s duties are meritorious in the sense that it is an obligation whose fulfillment is constitutively postponed or inadequate by some measure of degrees. Kant’s moral imperative is infinitely realizable, insofar as it is inexhaustibly outside the providence of its actual fulfillment qua duty.
