While in college I was doing homework with a friend, and he asked me how I was doing. I replied like I always have: “I’m doing good”. He smirked and replied “only Superman does good Jon”. Aside from being a wise guy, he was implying that I used the word good in the wrong context. The word good has a few different meanings but in this case it means something that is morally correct. Technically he was right. Superman does good by rescuing those in danger and at that very moment I was not doing good. I was just doing homework. His comment stuck with me for some time and from then on I made it a point to change my response to this small talk question to: “I’m doing well”. These days I think more and more about this expression in the context of my professional life. Am I doing good, or just doing well?
