Good enough is not good enough

The expression 'good enough' indicates that an imperfection is considered as a completion and that a further perfection is relinquished. Descriptively this is good enough because it is good to accept a present state of things and to be satisfied with it. Normatively however the ideal of perfection must be wielded because otherwise betterment will stagnate and evolution will come to a halt. Seen in that light good enough is not good enough.
