At Revolt we have a Daily Mindset that posts with our workout. The Daily Mindset from Saturday was the below:
“If you want to be truly successful at it, you cannot be content with ‘pretty good’”. – Tim Grover
“pretty good” is decent
“pretty good” is average
“pretty good” checks the box
“pretty good” is the enemy of excellent
This struck a chord and got me thinking about where and how I spend my time. Why? Because time is the only thing we cannot make more of, it is finite. Time is not guaranteed to us, regardless of our station in life or passion for it.
Where and how we spend our time is one of the most vital decisions we can make. If that is the case, why is ‘pretty good’ good enough?
Are you ok with being a ‘pretty good’ father or mother?
Are you ok with being a ‘pretty good’ husband or wife?
Are you ok with being a ‘pretty good’ son or daughter?
Are you ok with being a ‘pretty good’ at your occupation? Your relationships? Your education?
What are you truly passionate about? Are you ok being pretty good at it? And if so, what else are you willing to settle for?
Are you ok when your time on this earth is over, having a tombstone that reads:
Here lies ________, he/she was pretty good.
