Don’t Settle For Leftovers

Do you eat leftovers?  Some people do and some people do not.  I eat them.  Some things are just better the second time around.  Chili and meatloaf sandwiches to name a couple. 

While food leftovers can be alright with some foods there is one area where we should not be settling for leftovers.  Our self improvement. 

We are now 53 days until the first day of 2023.  Have you committed to being better at something when January 1, 2023 rolls around?

You may say that you want to be better but what time are you really giving to your own self improvement and development?

Do you give yourself fresh minutes or leftover minutes?  Do you make time at the start of your day or do you just give yourself some leftover time at the end of the day when you are tired and run down from your day? 

You can’t give yourself the best chance of learning and becoming as good as you can be by trying to do it with leftover time.  Every day for 53 days give yourself your best. 

Enjoy your leftover chili but don’t settle for giving yourself the leftover time.

I’m cheering for you.
