One of the most popular self-improvement expressions is "good is the enemy of great." Although it sounds appealing, it might also be wrong.
We are told that we have to strive to be great to meet the ever-increasing pressures of today's world. But two-thirds of all employees report feeling burned out at work. It is probably not the kind of success everyone is after.
True success means feeling content with the unfolding of your life. It's finding happiness in your work and life in the present time and being great all the time.
Interestingly, not always trying so hard to be great is the path to getting better.
To make sustainable progress, you don't have to be consistently great; it's about being great at being consistent.
We often convince ourselves that we're in a better place than we are, ignoring our problems, or distracting ourselves.
Progress requires confronting and accepting where you are. Only then you can take action and improve your condition.
Results don't come immediately, Consider diet. A 2018 study found the best predictor of weight loss was a constant adherence to the chosen diet.
The same is true for any persistent change. If you expect immediate results, you'll end up disappointed time and again.
Just be yourself. The more you can be completely involved in all of you - the good, the bad, the sad, the better you'll feel and the better you'll be.
You don't have to live up to an online perception of yourself or the workplace self. Just being who you are will enable you to make more genuine connections with others and gain real support when you need it.
Digital relationships cannot replace the in-person community.
The increased focus on productivity and constant busyness have led to a decline in meaningful communities and a rise in social isolation and related mood disorders. Taking the extra effort to be with others in real life is worth it.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
