Good, Better, Best.

Growing up, my mother repeated this motivational quote over and over to us:

Good, better, best.
Never let it rest until your good is better and your better is best.

After a time, we were like “Yeh, Mom, we get it.” (eye roll)

But she was absolutely onto something because…

By doing your best, you are going to live your life intensely. You are going to be productive, you are going to be good to yourself, because you will be giving yourself to your family, to your community, to everything. It is the action that is going to make you feel intensely happy. When you always do your best, you take action. Doing your best is taking the action because you love it, not because you are expecting a reward.
