Very Good Enough

Categories:Ink Think

Do you sometimes have those days (or weeks or months) where you just don’t feel good enough? It happens to the best of us. This week I had the pleasure of seeing Jane Wurwand, Founder of Dermalogica, speak and she knocked everyone’s socks off. The talk could not have come at a better time! By the way, if you don’t know who this woman is, check her out. She has built an empire and only started with 14k.

Among the many pearls of wisdom she wowed us with was her story of being “very good enough”. In the past, anything with the words “good enough” seemed subpar to me, as I am my toughest critic. Jane spoke about talking with her mother one day about trying to balance her company and family. Her mother ensured her that if she gets out of her pajamas by 3pm then “You are very good enough Jane!”

Suddenly all seemed right in the world. There are days, when we have lots of wins and there may be days where we are very good enough. Either way, doing our best is something to be proud of in itself.

By the way, I’m writing this at 1 in the afternoon in my pajamas and I’m good enough with it!
