Expanding your comfort level

Have you ever heard the phrase “good enough”?  I want you to start using it.

When you think everything has to be done a certain way or with perfection, stop and say to yourself, “it’s good enough”.

Good enough doesn’t mean “less than”.  It also doesn’t mean haphazard, lazy, or irresponsible.  Now I know that “good enough” isn’t always actually good enough, especially if you’re a heart surgeon or airplane mechanic.  For day-to-day living, good enough, is good enough.  Carefully thinking out the outcome you want and with a good dose of common sense and self-confidence, you will be able to see that your best really is good enough and nothing more is needed to make it better.

This concept of “good enough” is going to be difficult for some of you because it is a change.  You will have to expand your comfort level. Change is uncomfortable but it doesn’t have to be.  As with any change you want to make, start with baby steps.  You don’t have to organize every closet and drawer in one day.  Tackle one drawer at a time and stop.  Rome wasn’t built in a day and trying to cram more than you are able or willing to do and once sets the frame for frustration and further procrastination.

Begin practicing the good enough concept and you will start to feel more relaxed, freer and with time to live the life you want and deserve.
