Are You As Good Today As You’ll Ever Be?
By Mark Sanborn, Author
Will today be as good as your life ever gets?
Let’s pretend I’m an all-knowing being – which I most certainly am not – and that I visited you with an announcement: today, you’re as good as you’ll ever be. You’ll never be any better than you are right now.
Tomorrow won’t be terrible, but you will be a little less happy, a little less healthy, make somewhat less money, have shallower experiences and make a smaller impact. And that will continue each day for the rest of your life.
Would you be happy hearing that?
I am very confident that most people would say no.
At some level, we all hope and expect our lives will keep getting better… but what do we do each day to ensure that happens?
Ongoing improvement requires both desire and discipline. You need a passion and a plan.
That’s why I wrote, The Potential Principle: A Proven System for Narrowing the Gap Between How Good You Are and How Good You Could Be.
I’ve been fortunate to work with some of the best companies and highest performers of our day. I noticed that many had succeeded at becoming the best in their space, but once they did, they faced a greater challenge: how to become even better.
When you’re at the top of your game, improvements are more incremental and harder fought. You have few exemplars, if any, to emulate. You are the leader now, and just maintaining (not to mention increasing) that lead grows more and more difficult.
So, why get better? Learn why here.
