Good-Enough is not a dirty word

Posted at — Jan 4, 2013

“Good-Enough” has a number of acronyms ranging from geek to urban, however, the misconception is that GE is not really GE; that GE is somewhat short of the mark.The truth of the matter is that g-nuff is subjective and so is the mark that one hopes to achieve. For example GE for Steve Jobs is much higher than Bill Gates. This does not make BG bad or evil. He just has a different setting for GE.So when you’re working on your next project, whether it’s painting your house, changing a light bulb with a different wattage, or writing that next killer webapp. Set realistic marks and good ‘nuff will feel good. (keep in mind the law of diminishing returns as you get closer to the mark.
