Sadly, perfection is unattainable, my friends.
“Better” will evermore exist.
The balance between these... and your “good enough”
Is the calculation of your risk.
(This is simply... reality.)
Your “good enough” will be subjective.
Your “good enough” will be your bar.
It’s how you will judge the efforts of others.
It will define who you know YOU are.
Please stay true to your “good enough”...
Please stay true to your ideal.
Please keep the faith even when you are tried...
Please don’t allow others that faith to steal.
and don’t fear the coward’s bite.
Don’t let the failings of others influence your sight.
Don’t take flight
When you know there may be a fight.
(I swear - You are too bright to let that spite dim your light!)
I know it can be scary..but seriously -
When you are right...let yourself be right.
I strive for excellence in what I do but I also know that there is a middle ground in the achievable especially when dates by which something must be done can’t move. What I can’t abide though is when people try to take advantage of my empathetic nature or try to make me change the bar when it’s clear they screwed up. Not cool - this is really about reminding myself that I shouldn’t change the rules just because someone else f’ed up and furthermore it’s pretty shitty if they try to manipulate me into lowering my standards to cover their ass.
