Hold back

Be sure to save some in your reserve tank. 

You wouldn’t want to give everything you have, would you?

I mean our “better” is still good enough, right? It’s still above average. 

But by not doing your best, you lower the average and mediocrity becomes the acceptable standard. 

Don’t be just good enough.

    David, please forgive my ignorance. What’s your context here? Talking to yourself or dispensing advice to others? Knowing will help me leave a better comment.

    Hi Jeff!

    It is mainly a (sarcastic) reminder to myself (as a leader) and to those around me to do our best always. We teach it to our kids in school and grade them in it and expect it in all aspects of our lives. Yet the trends lately have been to accept a lower standard than our best.

    Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. Always appreciated!
