Yesterday I was in a conversation about the cost of getting a specification to a “perfect” state. I made a bold statement that most times perfection has too high of a cost and that I just need good enough. After stating that I started to consider what “good enough” really means.
A local radio show this morning was having a conversation about using a scorecard for children’s behavior for parents. Green mean that all criteria had been met, Yellow that a good attempt had taken place, and Red that it was probably a bad day for Johnny. Each color had a rewards or consequences section.
How do we need to change our view point? Are we thinking telescopic vs. microscopic? Critical thinking to expand the scope of the problem may indeed change the solution.
Too often we place ourselves in a position where failure is not an option, at least in our minds. I fail constantly. I believe the reason for this is that God has given me the strength to get back on my feet. This allows me to make big decisions and take risks. They should be well calculated and thought out, but His Grace will see me through when I fail.
