Setting the Bar High
“Setting the bar” means creating a standard or level that others strive to reach.
Yesterday, after meeting Houston, the fifth dog to share my home, my neighbor noted, “You set the bar high for a CRAZY dog lady.”
Later, when I mentioned that I set the bar high to another neighbor, he agreed, “Yes. We’re not even going to try to reach it.”
In 2014, standards have been lowered and expectations plummeted to below average.
Not with me. I’m setting the bar high.
