Sometimes C Work is Good Enough

My boss said that to me once.  And it really stayed with me.  We are all raised being told that you have to do your best and excel and be an A student.  Nothing I disagree with.  But then you get into the real world and realize that just isn't real life.  Sometimes, C work is good enough.  And sometimes, C work is actually really, really good.

I was invited to participate in a research study on working moms and balance (ha!).  I probably can't say too much about it as I have a feeling I signed a confidentiality agreement or some kind (was I supposed to read that?)  But two of the questions the interviewer asked me really stood out.

Interviewer: Thinking about your friends and family, how often do you think they'd say you have it all together?  All of the time, almost all of the time, sometimes, infrequently or never.

Me: Almost all of the time.

Interviewer: Now thinking about yourself, how often would you say you have it all together?  All of the time, almost all of the time, sometimes, infrequently or never.

Me: Infrequently

This morning was one of those days.  A day when C work would have been really, really good.
