Excellence vs Striving by John Richardson
There’s a fantastic comparison for modern day life which is ‘Excellence vs Striving’. The thought of striving is to work hard and finding the rhythm to perform at a high level, but it also portrays one where you are straining and really working to accomplish your targets and goals. On the other hand, excellence is where you do the best you possible can in a given moment. It’s the best you had to offer at the time which is all anyone can ever ask of you. This doesn’t make excellence the easier route though by any means, but Striving and Excellence do work hand in hand. If you strive and strive without any rest, you are likely to burn out. If you strive and work hard but team that up with excellent technique and self-care, which puts you in a pretty good state to take on the world!
