How often can we honestly say to ourselves that we gave it all we had ? And how often are we able to look at that piece of work and say ‘I couldn’t do any better than that’ ?
If we look back at our greatest achievements, or the things that moved us furthest/fastest forward in our lives, then I’m willing to bet that something in there was done at our absolute best - that we ignored the little voice on our shoulder that said ‘that’ll do’ and carried on until the little voice said ‘yes !’.
Excellence is a habit.
And all habits start with doing something for the first time…
