We live in a time of exceptionalism.
Everywhere we turn we are presented with the biggest, the best, the greatest, and the most important.
And it is not just coming from marketers. If you spend any time on social media you see people describing the best meal they have ever had, the greatest vacation of all time, and the most important thing they learned.
We have come to a place where if it isn’t the best then it must be a failure.
Wanting To Be The Best All The Time Is Bad For Us
I think that it is important to strive for better and that we give it our all, but there are times where wanting to be the best just isn’t good for us. It can even hold us back from taking action.
In this podcast I talk about the trap of needing to be the best all the time, the value of good enough being good enough, and how we can tap to find our way to the right level of excellence.
I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments about my challenging of your desire to be excellent at everything.
