Imagine this

Imagine if you worked an extra 20 minutes on that proposal.

Imagine if you exercised just another 10 minutes.

Imagine if you ate one less biscuit.

Imagine if you watched 10 minutes less Netflix.

Imagine if you practised one more shot.

Imagine if you told someone you loved them one more time.

Imagine if you helped the other person do one small thing.

Imagine taking one more step, doing a little more, saying something a touch better, making a small improvement.

Imagine settling for just a bit more than good enough each time.

Then imagine repeating that every day.

Imagine getting even better.

We don’t have to think or do big, we just need to take a small step forward and repeat.

Work in progress

I am a work in progress.

You are a work in progress.

That’s how we can choose to be for our entire lives.

There is never a finished product. Each stage we can learn, get even better, move up a level.

It’s a choice though.

Many times we can become comfortable, settled, think we are there. That’s OK too, there is nothing wrong with being comfortable.

However, often with staying still comes regret, comes disappointment.

The work in progress is best slow and steady, small incremental improvements, not giant leaps.

Finally, we can choose to enjoy the journey instead of settling for a particular destination or outcome.

Being a work in progress leaves us open, creative, resilient and genuine.
