93. Good, Better, Best?
That night I went to the gym. My favorite machine had a stack of 20 lb. weights and a dial that added resistance five pounds at a time.
I put the pin in the stack for what I thought was the most I could lift eight times. Someone had added ten pounds of resistance with the dial. I didn’t notice. I strained to get the last repetition, thinking I was having an off day.
When I saw I’d lifted more than I thought I could, I wondered how many other ways I’d accepted as my best less than I could actually do.
Today I won't limit myself to my ‘best.’
