Trying Your Best Is Good Enough: An Encouraging Words Episode

Episode 141E Trying Your Best Is Good Enough


In today’s Encouraging Words episode, I want to encourage you that you are probably not a person who doesn’t try their best. Sure, maybe you could do better if you had more time, or better materials, or any number of other things that make the situation different.

But right now, with the time and resources you have, you probably are doing the best job you can. If you can learn to accept this and relax, you may find you have more peace, more joy, and more creativity.

And if you decide that you really haven’t done your best, instead of castigating yourself, try to be specific about what you can do differently next time. Then relax and know you’ll do better next time. 🙂
