Our best? Or just good enough?

Dilbert.comYes, I do like Dilbert. Scott Adams can certainly present extraordinary insights into organizational behavior by observing what are all too often ordinary occurrences. Sadly, I find "us" depicted in the strips. And it challenges me to change.

This strip reminded me of a book I picked up in seminary: An Enemy Called Average by John Mason. This book is a great collection of devotions, quotes, anecdotes and thoughts that challenged me then and now. I think it was the first place I saw the concept that the enemy of "doing our best is not doing our worst. Instead it is doing 'just enough.'"

Let's raise the bar today. A new benchmark. Our best.
