- fast forward through hours of inner dialogue and a whole lot of nothing happening -
Here are my personal beliefs. I think you win when you reach what you set out to do. If you set out to attain a trophy, you win when you receive that trophy. If you set out to beat a certain personal record, you win when you beat that record. I realize there are many arguments to be made against the liberal interpretation of the word win and I don't disagree with all of them. I am just choosing to decide what victory means to me. After spending more time than necessary, I have come to the conclusion that my daily goal is still the same:
Today, I want to be my yesterday. And if I beat my yesterday, I win.
So yes. Winning matters and competition is good. I just choose to pit Jo 3.0 vs Jo 2.0.
Choose your competition, define your win, and conquer.
