Good enough is Good Enough
We seem to be a society that is obsessed with extremes... somehow it's not good enough unless it's great. Work has to be excellent or best practice (wonder who started with ordinary practice?). Bodies have to be attractive (and slim). And of course, we have to be the best we can be! It's not enough to play games, it's important to be on winning teams. Superpower, super-model, superstar, new & improved, super laxatives and Olympic medals...
I am considering writing a book with the working title: Abandoning Excellence - Good Enough is Good Enough. It will promote relaxing, slowing down, enjoying each other the way we are, striving for good enough in raising kids, getting jobs, getting fit, eating and on and on.
If this resonates with you, I'd love to hear your ideas for content.
If it doesn't resonate - feel free to climb back on the treadmill, find your perfect lover, be passionate in all you do... and you're very beautiful - really.
Actually,this is the basic principle i follow in my life.:)
Why worry all the time? I have no idea how long i can spend time on earth..maybe,i wont live the next second. So,its better if we stop the unnecesary rush.
B/w...how did u add this "site counter"? Pls can u teach me too?I would luv to have it in my blog:)
Great idea! I'll buy it!
