The Enemy of Improvement

success

“After winning the battle, tighten your helmet.”

The battle does not end when you win. The battle only ends when you get lazy, when you lose your sense of commitment, and when you stop paying attention. Live with alertness regardless of whether the goal has already been achieved.

This philosophy can be carried into many areas of life. The battle does not end when you publish a book. It ends when you consider yourself a finished product, when you lose the vigilance needed to continue improving your craft. The battle does not end when you hit a personal record. It ends when you lose concentration and skip workouts or when you lose perspective and over-train. The battle does not end when you make a big sale. It ends when you get cocky and complacent.

The enemy of improvement is neither failure nor success. The enemy of improvement is boredom, fatigue, and lack of concentration. The enemy of improvement is a lack of commitment to the process in achieving our goals.

“The journey is the reward.”
