Do’s and Doo-Doo’s: Discovering what is enough

I think there is a similar mindset at Stanford, a campus full of overachievers so competent at overachieving that we make it look like regular achieving. We wrap our identity and our worth in our accomplishments. “It’s not enough to just be a doctor, I need to be going to the number one medical school.” “It’s not enough to just be a student, I need to be starting dozens of clubs while juggling 20 units and a dance team.” Nobody is saying this out loud, but everyone is saying this in one way or another.
