Best Gets Better

I zipped open the baggie and peeled back the parchment to a beautifully stacked arrangement of lunchmeat. Two stacks of intersecting circles of turkey sitting like the spheres of a figure-8.
It reminded me, “how you do one thing is how you do everything.” The young woman at the Whole Food’s deli counter was attentive, it showed in the way she spoke and the way she served.
When we give everything our best effort, even the seemingly mundane, our best gets better.
Certainly, there are times when this is a good reminder, and times when we simply need to tread water. During COVID, we needed to tread water – for a long time. 
Fortunately, even treading water makes you stronger.
Now it’s time to get back to working hard, giving your attention to your work –  and your workouts.
Ask yourself, “what does my best effort look like today?
No matter how you slice it, there’s no shortcuts when it comes to improving your health. Striving to do our best, our best gets better.
