Identifying a path and calling it the “best way” leads to a potential opportunity to brand ourselves a winner. Lest we fail, however, we’ve just branded ourselves as a loser.
Better to just mark a potential path as “a” way, put in our best effort, and see what happens. Our best state-of-mind does not have the winners high or the losers low; it is one of calm and equanimity.
It’s all invented anyway. We might as well invent a way of thinking that makes us happy. There’s no best way. There is just a great way.. and then another.
