Is Good Enough…Good Enough?

Well in short, sometimes, yes absolutely.

Philip Stanhope, the fourth Earl Chesterfield once said “Whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well”.

If the above statement were true, I truly believe the human race would never have achieved anything worthwhile.

I recently read an amazing analogy about the above statement.

Although we are often made to believe that, if you can’t do something “properly”, don’t do it at all, let me ask you, have you ever played golf or tennis? Did you play well your first time? No, but you went back and played badly the second time because you understood that playing badly was part of the price of learning to play well.

The person with initiative says “anything worth doing is worth doing badly until I’ve learned to do it better”…

If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing badly!
