When is ‘good enough’ good?

Posted on: February 24, 2009

Where is that thin line separating ‘good enough’ from ‘extraordinary’?

This person I know said it’s there, barely visible and often goes unnoticed – especially by people who limit themselves and refuse to go over the boundary.

But what if, extraordinary is an oxymoron of life and I choose not to be anywhere near it? Extraordinary is not ‘good’ at all times. It is pretentious; a coward hiding behind the facet of power. Extraordinary is arrogant, boastful and proud. It shines the brightest and it tends to blind people.

I don’t like anything extraordinary. No, scratch that… I hate extraordinary.

‘Good enough’, on the other hand, is an old tale that rots with history. Sadly. Those who are JUST ‘good enough’ are forgotten. But they are, to my belief, those who lived life to its fullest. ‘Good enough’ is meek and humble but is never lazy.

It is contented – the way people should be.
