SO MUCH BETTER SO EASILY DONE
Friday June 12, 2015
Nobody complaining. People are happy. Or silent. Content. Sure. Expectations are low.
Have you done something well below your best – then someone says, “great job”?
Empty feeling, that, isn’t it – being praised for doing far less than we could have?
Good enough when we are capable of doing so much better …
Remember when a teacher or parent or coach would urge us on, knowing we could do so much better if we didn’t settle for ‘just good enough’ ?
Just today, on something – knock their socks off.
Rise way over that high-bar.
Do one thing better than anyone else has ever done it, don’t do it for anyone else.
Do it for you.
You know .
Do better than good.
Beyond better, beyond fantastic.
So many choices.
Do awe-worthy work.
