Subject: Re: good enough work
I finally found what I was looking for. It was posted farther
back than I had expected. I had saved it in a folder and forgot
what folder. Linda Fields shared this with us a while back.
My child, beware of "good enough,"
It isn't made of sterling stuff;
It's something anyone can do;
It marks the many from the few.
The flaw which may escape the eye
And temporarily get by
Shall weaken underneath the strain
And wreck the ship, the car or plane.
With "good enough" the car breaks down,
And one falls short of high renown.
My child, remember and be wise,
In "good enough," disaster lies.
With "good enough," the shirkers stop
In every factory and shop;
With "good enough," the failures rest
And lose the one who gives the best.
Who stops at "good enough" shall find
Success has left them far b ehind.
For this is true of you and your stuff,
Only the best is "good enough."
