    Loved your article.

    I also deal with the need for perfection and always seem to fall just a little bit short of reaching these high expectations.

    You are absolutely correct Gerry, we are both definitely good enough!

    Congratulations on breaking the board in your perfect spot!

      Thank you Joyce. One of my other idiosyncrasies is “seeking the approval of others”, so I especially appreciate your comment! 🙂

    I prefer to try for ‘excellence’ instead of perfection (or good enough). While perfection is close to impossible, excellence leaves enough room for interpretation that it’s a step above good enough, yet still feels realistic enough to strive for.

      Yes, Phil, I love that. It is a quote from “Good to Great” which is a fantastic business book.Thanks for reading!
