Is “Good Enough” Good Enough?

What is “good enough?” It’s a challenge a lot of us face, myself included. Although it’s easy to say that a program is “good enough” or results are “good enough,” I like to challenge that notion.

The notion of “good enough” is anti-potential. Potential is filled with hope, optimism, and the promise of amazing outcomes. However, when we lack discipline and/or consistency, we wind up saying the results are “good enough.”

I’m not the kind of person to settle for “good enough” and I don’t want my clients to settle for it, either. The truth is, I’ve had some clients make some amazing breakthroughs when they end up working a little harder, a little smarter, and are not satisfied with “good enough.”

I want you to reflect on your day and your week, and decide where you’ve made a conscious decision to say something is “good enough.” Think about what your life would be like or what results you would have gotten if you took time to put in that extra effort and worked a little harder in order to achieve your goal.

Don’t settle for good enough. Go out there, kick butt, and earn those woohoos! If you have any questions for me, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email.

How We Helped Pam Blake by Going Above and Beyond

“The results were very positive. He has been supportive of a lot of our programs here at the chamber, especially in driving more leadership and talent. He has facilitated several seminars here, he’s easy to work with, and he provides the material and input as they’re needed. The feedback on his presentations has been very favorable.

I think one of the things that is a highlight of what he provides is that he really cares about people and reaches out to them. He’ll go above and beyond for particular individuals when it’s not a return on an investment. He seeks out to help individuals in any way he can.”

How We Helped Rich Carlson by Balancing Personal and Professional Priorities

 

“They’ve been good. He does a good job of keeping me on task and is a good accountability partner. He’s tenacious about weekly meetings — he makes sure we either meet or at the very least have a phone interview.

He very professional. If we talked about implementing something, he will ask my why I haven’t done it yet. But he’s very gentle in his approach, and will let you know what you need to do to help yourself.

He asks what more he can do and is flexible with his meeting time. I think that’s the biggest thing: he tries to be accommodating with his work schedule. I know he’s a busy guy, so it’s nice to see that.

A big thing that sticks out in my mind is his concern for my family. Ultimately, with me, it’s not about making more money or growing my company bigger, it’s about finding balance in my life and spending more time with my family. He’s got a hand on the pulse of what my goals and values are. He’s always driving me to do things for my company that will help me with my family and personal goals. That to me has been wonderful. He’s always pushing me to get closer with my family, and you don’t see that too often. Nowadays, it’s all about going faster, building bigger, making more money, but Rick doesn’t push in that direction. It’s very positive in that regard.”
