A little inspiration from Seth Godin

On the road to mediocrity

Along the way, we settle.

We settle for something not quite right, or an outfit that isn’t our best look, or a job that doesn’t quite maximize our talents. We settle for relationships that don’t give us joy, or a website that’s, “good enough.”

The only way to get mediocre is one step at a time.

You don’t have to settle. It’s a choice you get to make every day.

I’ve seen the name Seth Godin for years, but really didn’t start reading him until about six months ago. I think this post (from June 20, 2009) is the one that hooked me.

I think about it it a lot.

And I don’t settle.
