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.’
