Compete vs Complete. What I Learnt From World Class Cyclists at The Race Across America

Nothing makes an effort sweeter than getting things done successfully. When we do things, do we do it merely for the sake of doing it (completing) or do we do it in order to improve ourselves (compete)?

It is worthy to make a note to ourselves that every effort is an opportunity to learn and get better. Every action we do must be able to reverb back us knowing that we’ve improved. 

The best analogy for this is in sports. Most times the trainings are repetitive, and the drills a chore. Yet after that hour or two of effort, the endorphins kick in and we see the rewards immediately. We feel great!

So what is it that you would like to do? Are you in it just because it’s a job, or are you in it because it makes a difference?
