The account in Genesis 1 is on creation, and God’s signature mark is consistent:
Day 5 -- God created the creatures of sea and air … and God saw that it was GOOD.
Day 6 -- God created the beasts … and God saw that it was GOOD. God created humans on the same day and they were made in His image.

In English, when three or more things are being described, the superlative adjective is used (e.g. the biggest fish.) When comparing two things, the comparative adjective is used (e.g. the bigger fish.) When there is only one thing, the positive adjective is used (e.g. the big fish.) The positive, comparative and superlative of the adjective ‘Good’ are Good, Better, Best.
Good is a good bar and I am contented with good. When I realized that in God "good" is the standard, I stopped striving for higher. And in so doing I've unintentionally done my best.
