Training the good enough muscle


Before I start this blog, I spend over half an hour dawdling on choosing a good enough topic. It is hard to choose since I have collected many ideas in Todoist for topics that are all fun. Choosing a subject often turns out to be the hardest part; once I make a start it comes naturally. This is true not only in starting to write, but also in many things where I have to make choices or start something. I am waiting for the right moment or the right choice before I can move on. More and more often, this procrastination appears. Good enough is good enough to begin with. Later, it often turns out that what seemed only mediocre at first eventually becomes good by itself. Waiting for the perfect goal or the perfect time to start doesn’t work. Working until it’s perfect doesn’t work either.

The good enough muscle

It is nice to give yourself permission to be satisfied with good enough. Training the good enough muscle to become strong and daily in many situations keeps you from choice paralysis, procrastination or perfectionism. There are endless situations daily to train the well enough muscle.

When folding laundry, leave the t-shirts inside out and fold nicely (fold twice in this sentence, leave nicely)

When buying a product online of which there are 243 versions, purchase the first one that looks fine instead of looking at and comparing all 243 products.

When exercising, do your workout in half once.

And come up with your own example, I think it’s good enough as it is.

This blog contains only 265 words instead of 300 which is my goal, nice to leave it that way, good enough.
I’m going to do something else with my time, good enough, bye.

Picture is also just as good enough. Nice blur, crooked fingers, something about letting go....
