The whole and its parts

The whole & its parts

Good enough has a reference point

It’s easy to say that one needs a good enough result or that one can create something that is good enough. But, what if good enough is seen in relationship to a result being right? Or just? Or perfect?

I can easily see myself procrastinating when I don’t have an answer to these questions. Independently of how true or realistic this might be, in my mind the representation of right, just, or perfect can easily mean flawless. And when I have no idea as to how such a result can be achieved, I’ll procrastinate until the time available will decide what is possible. That’s what good enough will end up being.

Things are entirely different when I’m in the process and creating something. Then, my imagination can step in and start to create a representation of what I’m creating. The clearer it gets, the easier it is to find what good enough will look like. Usually, that’s also when it becomes much better than good enough.
