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.
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.

Setting a goal and doing everything possible to pursue it is a great feeling.
However, often it is the very striving to be great that gets in the way of actually being great.
When we are young and insecure, passion or striving often manifest as looking ahead and craving external validation (becoming a champion or lawyer or millionaire or whatever).
If we gain wisdom, the energy of our passion and striving becomes less about achieving the goal and more about where you are on the journey at present. It is about having a richer experience of the present moment. With this as a focus, you are more likely to achieve success.
