Incremental “Finished-ness”

by | Thoughts

The afternoon project was to weed the garden. Fatigue set in after two hours.  In the past, this gardener would have pushed himself toward conclusion. But, on this occasion, there was a halting and a trip to the ice tea.

There was no frustration in the inner-life cupboard. In deed, there was a celebration of progress made.

Do not wait until graduation to celebrate. Do not wait until the last chapter of your book is written to celebrate. Do not practice in order to become prefect. This is an illusion. Practice to become better, better occurs one step at a time. Celebrate each step taken.

My early return to the house gave me time with my wife and her grand ice tea. It also gave me a grand story to illustrate this point.
