Good is the Enemy of Great

September 7, 2018

A few years back, I would often use references from a book, Good to Great, in my

speeches and trainings.  While the examples cited mostly corporate lessons, I believed it was equally relevant to life. 

 

Lesson #1: Good is the enemy of great.

 

Oftentimes when we think we're good--it invites complacency.  Good so often becomes 'good enough" and our striving to improve dissolves.

 

We started ChattyCupcakes determined to always strive to better our best--"good" is never good enough.  Our conversations are continually discussing ways to improve--better ingredients, better recipes, and better processes.  There is always room for improvement.

Be careful who/what you compare yourself to--your perspective may misrepresent reality.
