Satisfied is this flawed term that we like to throw around too often because we think it means “good”. Satisfied means we met the requirements and didn’t take any effort to do more than simply checking off the checklist. Customer service has become so bad, that oftentimes as long as we are not being insulted or attacked, we are “satisfied”.
“Satisfactory” no longer means good, it simply means not crappy. It means okay. It means we could do better. Being satisfied means being mediocre.
We are becoming too complacent. Don’t be “satisfied” with your performance in life, be excellent.
