Pretty Good is a Trap.
It isn't the pursuit of perfection (that we will never attain) that makes settling for this a trap, it's that setting our standard too low doesn't allow us to at least have the opportunity to reach our Full Potential.
Studies have shown that Successful people who lower their expectations of themselves are then less Successful.
When we accept "pretty good" results, Complacency sets in, and we lose motivation to continue improving.
Setting High Standards, pushing oneself to achieve better results is crucial for Personal and Professional Growth.
Our Efforts create our Reality.
