Been a while folks…I’m still here…with my return from the shadows I’ve got a lesson from my father.
I was going through a lot of decision making this summer and my dad as always was a primary sounding board.
One day though he gave me a nice reminder.
He told me he didn’t care what I was, a coach, a teacher, a writer, sales rep, or anything but he didn’t raise me to be mediocre.
I was always taught that if I’m going to do something I out work everyone else at it. Better to not do something than to not do it well.
That reminder that mediocre isn’t in my genetic make up was the kick in the ass I needed to get back into the fight of life.
So as I write this post between sets in the weight room before I go to teach, I challenge all you not to be mediocre today. Step up to whatever challenges come looking for you today.
