If you try to win every day, you don’t need to do anything different, no matter the peaks or the valleys.
This is an idea from Mark Miller’s newest book “Win Every Day,” That comes out March 10th. It is a quick business fable that is straight money. (Total side note, you should click here and pre-order a copy of the book. This isn’t an affiliate link, I just think you really need it) There were a handful of other thoughts and ideas that I could write about, but this is the one that jumped out the most. The reason why this jumped out to me is because I find myself getting so flustered when things go wrong or issues keep on compounding one on top of another. What this idea means is that as long as we are trying are absolute best and giving every day all we have, we don’t need to worry about the outcomes. Yes, it is easy to say that when we are “winning” or things are going are way, but this idea is just as true when the stuff hits the fan. It doesn’t make it any easier, but it does give us freedom to not beat ourselves up over the mistakes or losses that we will experience over the day. When we try to win every day, give it our absolute best, it allows us to not over celebrate the wins and it keeps us from wallowing too much in the mistakes.
