A good enough-ist doesn’t mind that plans don’t happen. That some tasks go left unchecked. She doesn’t mind that she created a piece of work that’s not her best. She’s fine with not knowing how to tackle a task and can mention this to her peers. A good enough-ist is courageous when she feels like she cannot be responsible for some tasks that’s been assigned to her and speaks up about it immediately.
She can allow herself to work hard according to her own values and standards, and NOT according to the university program standards or what she assumes her project team expects.
A good enough-ist trusts her instinct and doesn’t buy a book to find the best way to not procrastinate for instance. She just does it and experiences the moment even if it feels like diving under a big wave.
