Success and the rear view mirror

Much of success – the kind that sticks around anyway – is being able to look through the rear view mirror knowing we did our best with the cards we were dealt.

It follows, then, that the best thing we can do today is to be thoughtful and intentional about the choices we make today about where we’re headed. The arbitrary outcome goals, disappointments of yesterday, random ego battles, and miscellaneous worries will fade in time.

All that will remain and matter is that we did the best we could with what we have.

And, that we did better when we knew better.
