Your best effort, on this, again

I quote here directly from James Clear’s weekly 3-2-1 newsletter, which I love:

“Improvement is a battle that must be fought anew each day.
Your next workout doesn’t care how strong your last one was.
Your next essay doesn’t care how popular your last one was.
Your next investment doesn’t care how smart your last one was.
Your best effort, again.”

(Subscribe on James Clear’s website)

Absolutely spot on. And yet, we must to be mindful not to apply this across every aspect of our lives. Everything, everywhere, always striving – sounds exhausting, doesn’t it? We can’t ignore that the time, energy and attention we have available are all finite.

Decide what matters and give that your best effort.

Again and again.
