At every age we can get far too focused on mastering one thing at the expense of other things. We all do this in one way or another. We stress ourselves trying to be the best at work, better mates, perfect parents … the list is endless.

Our overall feelings of success and satisfaction at the end of each day can be raised with a simple tweak. Instead of stressing ourselves about doing any one thing 100% better, maybe we can just do the 100 things that come our way 1% better.

It’s the little improvements in every area of our lives that lead to a greater sense of, “Wow! I had a great day!” vs. the worry that we may create if we believe we need to get anything or everything a hundred percent right, 100% of the time.

Be gentle with yourself. You’re probably doing just fine. Little tweaks on a daily basis will keep moving you positively in the right direction. 

PS: This is me just trying to get the pose 1% more fun. 😉
