Good vrs Great
In my view an instance of some repeated experience (like eating or sex) can be below average and still be perceived as good but being below average and being great are incompatible. So for example going often to a fancy restaurant and expecting a great meal every time (or even most times) is unrealistic. Better to aim for a good meal almost every time and an occasional great meal. This is also a reason (which I might heed more) for trying new things which you have not yet become blase about.
