“Strive for progress, not perfection.” –Anonymous
It’s way easier and ingrained to acknowledge the hugeness of the gap between where we are and where we want to be…
Than to recognize the daily, weekly, monthly or annual progress toward our goals.
The opportunity of growth is to be inspired by what can be, notice the land that must be claimed, and turn the challenges of claiming it into acts of play and learning.
Heck, even an hourly planting of a flag of accomplishment today — in the face of the gap of growth — can render us more self-esteemed by days end than where we started.
How many flags of progress can you count today?
“Pain plants the flag of truth within a rebel fortress.” –C.S. Lewis
