What’s the difference between crap and good enough?

What’s good and what’s crap? Why do celebrate crap? This is the topic of this week’s podcast, and a discussion on our journey through embracing crap making and coming out better for it.

I saying I repeat early and often is “Ok-ness is the enemy of greatness”. You see, most stuff that exists is good enough, and that goes for people too.

People like crap, but think it’s actually good. Does this sound too harsh? It’s not because we all contribute to tolerating and accepting crap. Think about it, are we really challenging and inspiring our children to be great? If you are the type of parent who celebrates learning, then you are pushing your kid to greatness. But if you are the type of parent who punishes your kid for making mistakes, then you are breeding mediocrity.

Same goes inside businesses, most all large organizations punish employees for making mistakes; which kills creativity and any potential for innovation.

What determines a path from good enough to great? In my mind, it’s a point of view. Why do you want to do this? What’s motivating you? If all that’s motivating you is to make a quick buck because you see the same opportunity everyone else does, then most likely you will create crap; not even good enough.

So, what’s the difference between crap and good enough? Listen along 😉
