A “good enough” attitude is one that fully utilizes our skills, focus and positive intention. Through this approach and mindset, we can produce our best effort and then move on to other matters. When we shift our focus to “good enough,” we not only get to produce some pretty high quality outcomes, we also get to feel good about our work and ourselves. Ironically, our “good enough” results tend to meet objectively high standards. The added bonus in this approach is that our “good enough” work, rather than resulting in mediocrity and complacency, tends to motivate us toward increased results and next level professional and personal growth; it also results in our increased authenticity in our work and our relationships.
I invite you to try on a “good enough” mindset for a week or two or three and notice what happens. Notice the shift in the quantity and quality of your results, your internal experience, your impact on others and your overall enjoyment of your work. Try it!
