Satisfaction realized is a moment to celebrate, but not the end game. A point of success has been reached, one that we aspired, planned and acted accordingly to attain. Be satisfied with such accomplishments, but then what?
We can hold to the pattern that provided our satisfaction or we can continue onward. There is certainly more and different ways to be realized if we would again aspire, plan and act. If we hold to first satisfaction on all accounts, we would fail to continue learning.
If we set the bar low enough, we can always achieve. In circumstances of learning, improving and making contributions it is critical to adjust the bar higher and then higher so that we continue on closer to our full potential. Use the opportunities or we will lose them by settling for good enough.
“Restlessness is discontent and discontent is the necessity of progress. Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure.” — Thomas A. Edison —
