Good Enough Isnt

When “Good Enough” isn’t!

  • Always in the “opponent’s” shadow?
  • Regularly missing the target / goal / mark?
  • Performance / workmanship often substandard?
  • Plans often don’t work out?
  • Often walking a legal tightrope – risking fines, sanctions, judgements, etc.
  • Regular breakdowns (ignoring maintenance schedules, etc.)
  • Partners, colleagues, subordinates, superiors frustrated with you
  • Always having to make excuses, explain yourself, etc.?

 

WHY? ARE YOU:

  • Taking shortcuts?
  • Trying to do everything yourself?
  • Not in touch with reality / not facing the truth / not “pulling it all in”?
  • Taking unnecessary risks?
  • Careless / reckless / irresponsible?
  • Blasé / don’t care?

 

OR DO YOU:

  • Not do enough research / consultation?
  • Not plan well enough? 7p’s?
  • Easily get distracted?
  • Have poor stick-to-itiveness?
  • Lack focus
  • Have periods of non sobriety?
