Get to know your staff! - EvidenceVsFaith

RE: Get to know your staff! - EvidenceVsFaith
I would rather stay dissatisfied and strive to improve myself than lie back feeling satisfied.

That's my personal preference. If I was satisfied I wouldn't be driven to improve. And in fact, that could even cause problems that ultimately make me more unhappy.

No no... you say this because you are not currently satisfied. If you were satisfied, then you would not be dissatisfied with yourself, and wouldn't want to improve Smile Fact is you are NOT satisfied, and aren't thinking from the position of what being satisfied would mean ^_^

Satisfied isn't dissatisfied of course, and so there would be no reason to improve if everything was already considered satisfactory.

Which is exactly why I don't want to be satisfied. Because if I was I wouldn't want to improve.

Which would mean that you are as close to "perfect" in your mind as I think one can get Tongue

I want to improve on the outside, not make myself believe I'm better on the outside when I'm actually not Wink

I want to strive and prosper... not settle down and be satisfied.

One can easily strive and prosper and still be settled down and satisfied Smile

I didn't say that you should ie to yourself, silly Smile I just remarked that you didn't seem satisfied with yourself Tongue

I don't want to be satisfied.... besides, it's hard to have satisfaction when you always want more :p

Interesting exchange of viewpoints Tongue The act of wanting means that one isn't satisfied with what they have. It would be interesting if anyone was ultimately 'satisfied' Thinking
