Choosing between good or great

When faced with the option to be good or great, it seems like a no brainer. Of course we want to be great. Of course we want to be the best. But it’s never that easy. Normally being great at something comes at the cost of taking the higher, more difficult road. Often we have to sacrifice an easy win in order to be really freaking excellent. We have to push our selves outside our warm and fuzzy comfort zone. But the beauty is in the greatness. The life magic is at that next level of excellence.

I was mused by a dentistry newsletter sent along to me (yes, dentistry. I take my inspiration any way I can get it) which laid out some really valuable ways we can take our thinking from average to excellent. Like an aperture, shifting from good to great shines nothing but light on our lives. And so I got to thinking about shifting some of my own values…

Great

Giving without expectation

How can you go from good to great right now? How can you take your life, your thinking, your perspective to the next level? I’d love to hear some of your own good to great moments.
