Perfect execution, a 10 out of 10 on the skill sheet; it exists. There is a skill ceiling.
For most physical actions in life, it can only be done so well - to the sum total of perfect.
Sure, there can be a few creative approaches, different paths to the perfect performance, but it still remains that an IV start, the placement of an advanced airway, a tourniquet application; can only be done so well. There is a ‘maximum score.’
There is a limit on skill.
However, there is no limit on character.
2021. New year, new chapter, new road, whatever we want to call it.
Have you heard this statement yet - ‘wow, 2020 sucked. I hope 2021 is a better year.’ (Maybe you’ve heard it, maybe you’ve said it yourself.)
Well, heads up, friends - hope is not a plan.
This is not to say that an optimistic mind set or having dreams is a bad thing, because they certainly are not. But, positive thoughts alone do not move the needle when it is time to go out and do the hard things In life. Well wishes do not carry the sick and wounded to safety at 2 am. Good intentions mean zip-squat without the action and follow through.
We simply can not hope and dream a better 2021 into existence.
What we should be doing is getting rock solid on our values, conditioning ourselves for resilience, setting high standards and taking consistent action.
