Mediocrity

  • This is a riff on https://www.ribbonfarm.com/2019/04/15/mediocratopia-4/
    • If you're mediocre, you can just read that.
  • Mediocrity is playing the infinite game. Not putting your reputation on the line each time. Living more freely, more stress-free.
  • Mediocre doesn't equal bad quality. It just means that you're accepting a not-best effort right now in order to maximize your future fitness.
    • Any time you spend going from acceptable to excellent could be spent getting something else from non-acceptable to acceptable.
  • Setting goals is playing finite games. They are not worth playing if you're not the kind of people who get a massive kick out of achieving your goals.
  • Living every day doing whatever you want, no apologies, is a surprisingly effective strategy. So much so, that you might be inclined to work on your goals again.
