Doing Good Vs. Doing Well
There’s always going to be that annoying person who likes to correct other people’s speech and grammar. One common correction that pops up is when a person tells another person, “you did good.”
That smarty pants will chime in and say, “Well. You did well.”
But you know what?
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with doing good. In fact, I think it’s a high compliment too.
In my opinion, doing good comes from a real and deep soul place. It’s meaningful, it’s without expectation of something in return. Doing good has no room for pretense. Doing good is thinking about others, doing good is spreading positivity. Doing good is choosing to do the right thing especially when no one is looking.
Don’t get me wrong, I won’t knock doing things well. We should always aspire to do things well. But doing good is pretty great too.
Doing things well is a good thing. Doing things well is the blood, sweat and tears and the discipline and work that sits on the foundation of doing good. You really work at doing things well.
Doing well is execution and mastery of whatever it is you were trying to do. Doing well is when you have the tools to elevate, share those tools so others can do the same and then that’s exactly what you do.
