Be A Work In Progress

“Art is never finished, only abandoned.” — Leonardo da Vinci

“There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. Yet that will be the beginning.” Louis L’Amour

The thing about keeping daily habits is they are always something that you are trying to improve and strive for.

A goal is just something to aim for.

We can set milestones on our journey, but the goal isn’t the finish line, it’s the daily progress and joy that comes from doing something you love. Because when we hit our goals (or even when we don’t) we still have an itch to keep going and aim for the next peak.

The reward is the in the doing, not necessarily the destination.

The only reward we get for having clean, healthy teeth is a lifetime of use.

Of course, the destination of being a professional, being excellent at what you love is a rewarding goal. And also something that you continuously work at, even when you “arrive” at your peak.

That’s why we need to learn to get comfortable in the uncomfortable and enjoy the present, fully engaged.

When we can do that, not only can we continue to reach for better work and skills, but also be happy in the moment.
