This is what conquers everything

I think my compulsion comes from needing to “conquer myself”.

To get 1% better each time.

I don’t like yesterday’s Mike.

He’s lazy. 

He’s greedy.

He’s selfish and arrogant and argumentative.

But he has some good qualities too.

He’s thoughtful and reflective.

He’ll give 100% if you give 100%.

I want to move 1% more towards the good, away from the bad.

And that’s where momentum is built.

Life, business, money, health, strength.

My compulsions lie in trying to do 1% better each day.

And of course I miss stuff. 

I forget to meditate or write.

Or I can’t be bothered to.

I cancel meetings, quit projects and skip stretches.

And maybe that’s why I’ll drive myself into the ground, to try and make up for lost time.

Which obviously isn’t healthy or sustainable.

But progress is progress.

Slow progress is progress.

Incremental progress is progress.

1% can move planets and change climates.
