Good is the enemy of great...

The war has been declared!
I had dinner with some good friends the other night and it occured to me; the lines in the war between good and great have been drawn. I am on the side of good.
The phrase "good is the enemy of great" really says a lot about the way we live in general. The feeling seems to be good isn't good enough. Well I have decided to fight for the forces of good. I am not going for greatness, I think greatness might be to much.
Those who live by the mantra; good is the enemy of great are simply missing the good in life. The are striving for what they don't have, all the while missing what they do have.
If you are looking for greatness; Fuck you! Goathork isn't ever gonna be enough for you, we are looking to just be good enough.

"Greatness is stupid, tone it down a bit, settle for good".
