Daily Journey – August 1st: Don’t Go Expecting Perfection

Our expectation for perfection is often the first, and hardest hurdle, to getting started. Perfection is a unicorn… it simple does not exist. You can get started right now knowing the first step you take will get you closer to good enough, and once you are good enough you can move on to excellence.

Excellence is not perfection, it is doing the best you can with what you have.

Expect excellence.

Daily Journey is a collection of my thoughts from reading The Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living.  My objective is to gain greater control of my emotional responses by reading and sharing my thoughts on stoicism with you all everyday over the course of a next year.  If you would like to explore these topics with me, and others who are seeking to gain emotional control I these articles to the Mastery of Skill closed facebook group and would love for you to join in on the conversation.

Live Skillfully!
