I’ve been thinking about excellence vs. perfectionism.  Where is the balance?  How do we strive for excellence without driving ourselves crazy with perfectionism?  What is excellence?  I don’t want to settle for good enough – but when IS enough, enough?  I’m not perfect and doesn’t an impossibly high standard only serve to make me feel bad about myself?

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart as working for the Lord, not for men . . . it is the Lord Christ you are serving.    Colossians 3:23&24b
