‘Only the best is enough’ is often out of reach, it is idealised.
The focus is often on the goal rather than being present to the process. When the focus is only on the goal then it becomes very narrow. When things change or don’t go the way we thought it can really challenge our sense of control. By obsessing over it we lose trust: trust in others, trust in ourselves. We lose living in the experience, discoveries and staying with the process.
