When Good Enough Becomes Never Enough. Wonderful thoughts on looking straight ahead and keeping focused. I would also add that Keeping up with the Jones’ never works anyway, just makes you feel unhappy with what you already have. As a single mom, it is easy to compare myself to the people I work with who have spouses and have been working as an RN longer than I have. They have a retirement account, nice houses and cars, while I am a recent graduate and struggling to make ends meet. Thank you for the reminder to quit comparing myself to others!
