Are you hitting the gate?
Work has a different pace
than a 2 minute downhill Olympic ski race.
Relax into your daily performance
and you will sustain work for an entire career
while constant and never ending improvement
has you chasing pots of gold
at the end of rainbows.
If you give 110% you are giving more than you’ve got.
If you go the extra mile you will pass your destination.
And even if you go the extra yard you will end up out of bounds.
Burning the midnight oil is too much focus on toil
without a restful lack of focus, called sleep.
Good is good enough
without having to go to great
and you don’t have to burn out to avoid fading away.
Do what you can, with what you’ve got, where you are
for exquisite employee engagement
preventing you from missing
your four year old daughter’s surprise birthday party.
Rat races are only for rats
and work does not have to be a myopic focus on going downhill fast.
Perhaps stronger is lower and slower not
Citius Altius Fortius
