Day 2451: The difference between good and great

What’s the difference between good and great? Here’s one difference:



A great co-worker and mom showed me that great card yesterday.  Another great co-worker and mom showed me more great pages of The Daily Bitch Calendar:





Last week, when I did my first Coping and Healing group for staff,  I was basically a cucumber with anxiety, but the group was still good.  Today, when I’m doing my fourth group for staff,

  • I’m less anxious and
  • I’m very happy that the feedback about the group has been so great.

The managers at work think the groups are so great that they want me to do more and also train other good therapists to do them.


Do you see the difference between good and great in my other photos from yesterday?






Every two weeks, I need to perform an INR test and test my blood because of my heart issues.  The results are always good and usually great!

There are a lot of videos on YouTube titled “The Difference Between Good and Great, including one by The Angry Therapist.

Yesterday, on my way home from work, I listened to this great tune by the great Jacob Collier a good many times:

How would you define the difference between good and great?

Great thanks to all those who helped me create today’s post and to you — of course! — for being so great.

  1. I am glad you allowed me to start my day off with your great news today, Ann.

  2. Pointing out that the human body is 90% water is good. It’s useful, or at least interesting, information. Saying we’re “cucumbers with anxiety” is great. It’s not always that easy but sometimes all it takes is a little extra to push things up to eleven.

  3. The difference is a whole heap of awesomeness!

  4. Good is acceptable and great is amazing, Ann 🙂
    Just my first thoughts to your questions.

  5. A cucumber with anxiety might be in a bit of a pickle if they didn’t have your skills, Ann. Congratulations on pulling it off!

  6. Wow, I think you must be great!!! Good is conscientious and gets the job done right every time. Great, well, they go a bit beyond and we all should sometimes, but we shouldn’t let perfect (or great) be the enemy of good. This from a cucumber with anxiety who likes the sound of that diet…

  7. Good is good but great is better or so I am told

  8. The first two pictures are great

  9. You know, I don’t think I CAN identify the difference between good and great beyond knowing that if all my “chicks” are doing well, I’m really great! The Daily Bitch cards were GREAT! I laughed out loud and that makes me feel great!
