‘Why do we strive for excellence when mediocrity is required?’

 

I’m still reading The Magic of Believing, but I also ran across a book I already owned called, It’s Not How Good You Are, It’s How Good You Want to Be.

The title of this post is the first section in the book. I’d bought my copy back in 2007 when I was interning at the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum in New York (I know this because that’s what the sticker on the back of the book says) and haven’t read it since then. It was great then, but makes even more sense now. I was sneaking over to Eastern Washington today for my day off to hang out with family and I threw it in my bag. Good stuff.

 

I’m not going to say what the cause was, but I could mention that I walked into a casino today with $40 and walked out with $80. Believing in myself didn’t hurt! Not that I’m planning on making a career out of playing penny slots…
