Have you ever worked on a project with someone and had them exclaim, “That’s good enough!”

When I hear that phrase, I cringe.

Maybe I get carried away.  Maybe I strive too much toward excellence.  Maybe I dance with perfection.  And just maybe I don’t want to be ordinary when I can be extraordinary.

Recently I came across this phrase….



I much prefer it to, “That’s good enough!”


How about you?  If we drew a line in the sand would you be on the “good enough” side or the “striving toward excellence” side?


Does it matter?

    Hello, Diane! Love that quote. I guess for me it depends what we are talking about. Sometimes good enough is just that and I don’t stress. At other times, good enough, isn’t. Know what I mean? Hope you are having a good Monday!

      Hi Susan!
      Yes, I do understand. I’m working on a project that needs to look great for one week. It won’t last forever. I’m having to remind myself that some details can’t be seen from 20 feet away…which is the closest someone would view it. There is a tension with the time I invest also. In that case good enough may be just right. Then again. If I have the time, the materials, and it would make a difference…the extra makes it extraordinary. 🙂
      Hope your week is Extraordinary!!
