Life doesn’t always let us be as disciplined as we want.
Sometimes all we can do is one thing to move the pile forward, clock out and call it a day.
And in these moments, it’s hard not to be hard on ourselves. When we can’t seem to steal enough moments from the crowded day, our default response is to grab the gloves and jab ourselves until we’re black and blue.
But while it’s not the most fulfilling or productive output, what matters is, we still tried. We still showed up, overstuffed schedule be damned, and did our work.
Even if it didn’t amount to that much.
