Under effort

A parent in my class introduced me to the term under effort. Right now is always a good time to strive for good enough, that is, consciously doing a little less than you think you ought to. When lots of great, albeit unbidden, ideas come your way, it can feel like a relief to know you don’t have to do any of them!
