When Good is Not Good Enough

What do you do when your best isn’t good enough?

MiddleMe

You received your graded paper, the paper that you worked all summer, only to get a D. You worked hard and overnight to rush through a project for a customer, only to have it rejected outright within minutes of submission. You walked into the office on Monday morning to be called into your boss’ office to get scream at for a project that you weren’t even in charge of.

What happens when your good is not good enough for others? Do you vent frustrations on yourself, on others? Do you push responsibility to others and not yourself? Do you blame yourself and wish you can die on the spot? 

It happened to me too! 

In fact, it can happen to anyone and everyone. Nobody is perfect to begin with and sometimes expectations are not align or there is misunderstanding in the communication or maybe you are just having a bad…

Adventures of the Madcap Christian Scientist

“Each individual must fill his own niche in time and eternity.”
– Mary Baker Eddy
