Looking Good is a Bad Look

by Ben Perreira

Apologies to the Queen for the crass language in the above clip, but it’s necessary to make the point.

A lot of us do things we think look good. We try to impress our bosses, significant others, or maybe strangers. We do just enough to not look bad, but end up regressing to the mean (i.e. mediocrity). The gap between how we look and how we think we look is often large, like it is for Barry.

So how about we start taking risks, doing good work, doing good deeds, and worrying less about covering our asses? I suspect progress would ensue for those willing to take the leap.
