Then I stepped back and looked at the big picture. Greenville is still more than a year away. Rio is still more than three years away. The past 2.5 weeks are not going to make or break my success in either event.
So I decided to find something that I could repeat and hold on to - something that would hold me accountable to my goals for today and my goals for the future.
Seems simple enough to be repeated, but deep enough to mean something.
