When Good Enough is No Longer Good Enough

How are things going for you these days? Good enough?

Look, I get it. When we reach a certain level of success and comfort – however each of us defines those terms – the last thing we want to do is screw it up. After all, things could be worse, right?

I’ve had seasons in my life where I’ve traveled down this Good Enough path. I fell into a comfortable rhythm as I encountered predictable ups and downs along the way. The view may not have always been spectacular but it was, well, good enough.

Some of us stay on this path our whole lives. Occasionally, we consider a few ‘what if’ scenarios like, “What if I had taken that job offer?” or “What if I’d gone back to school?” or “What if I’d followed up on that business idea?” But these thoughts pass and we continue our way.

For others, IT happens.
