It’s amazing the emphasis that is placed on “finishing first”. Now mind you, I’m not a big fan of the “Johnny and Janey are awesome and do everything perfectly” school of thought. The “everyone is a winner” school of thought is a bunch of poppycock. However, the win at all cost mentality just doesn’t resonate with me.
That’s probably because I’ve taken to looking at “first” a bit differently. Previously, it WAS my primary focus. I was absolutely hell bent on winning. On finishing first. Over time, that has changed. Now my focus on “first” has more to do with “what should I be doing first?” That’s an entirely different question that leads to entirely different actions and entirely different outcomes.
Outcomes that result in a more balanced, happy, and satisfying life.
With that in mind:
- What is first for you?
As always, thanks for the time.
