This has been a hectic month.
It has been a very hectic year.
Between work and family life I have struggled to get much done. I came up with a mantra for this year around February time, after my good friend Malcolm sadly passed away and I was thinking about priorities in life…
“Good enough is good enough…”
After some brief analysis of where my time was being spent I realised that my desire to exceed expectation and to over-deliver was sucking my time away.
So, I thought I could address this by focussing on delivering the “acceptable”, something that is “good enough”.
I have been told that my perception of “good enough” is what needs focus and attention.
Or maybe it doesn’t?
What is wrong with striving to be the best I can be? To author the best documents and content? To deliver the best solutions?

I agree that sometimes “good enough is good enough” – but I can’t default to it…
Therefore I will continue to strive, to push and surpass. But when I need, or want, it to be, good enough will have to be good enough…
