Good Is the Enemy of Great


At my high school, every senior gets to choose a quote to appear in the yearbook with her picture. Some are funny, some are inspirational, and some recall specific and memorable moments in our lives. I chose a quote that I have heard since I was little and has stayed with me, pushing me to constantly abandon complacency and seek new opportunities and growth outside my comfort zone.
