1/20/16 – Enough Is Enough
Something crossed my mind the other day as I was running listening to my Kendrick Lamar/J. Cole playlist on my Iphone. I was a mile in and it just hit me, like the cold windchill in Canton, Ohio where I was running at. Enough with settling to be “average” in life. I’m sick and tired of being average!
Looking back on my days in high school, I could’ve of been a way better student but I was satisfied with getting B’s. I never challenged myself or cared about being an Honor Roll Student. That didn’t change when I attended college. Honestly, in college, I just did enough to get by and once again I was satisfied with the average results. Now in my mid 20s I’m looking back saying to myself, “I wish I can do school over again with a better focus level and engagement.”
After completing that run, I said enough is enough. With the work that I’m putting in now at my current job, it’s only right that I challenge myself to get out of my comfort zone and to be the best at what I do.
Let’s think about it for a second. If you truly love your job, you shouldn’t settle for just getting by being happy with doing an “okay” job. So many people in the world don’t have the joy of doing a job that they truly love everyday. I do and enough is enough!
If you’re reading this and you truly love your job, the time is now. Don’t be satisfied with being average or good, challenge yourself everyday to be Great and the Best at what you do.
