A difficult one.
A big personal challenge to get this post out as all my original plans went down the drain and I got stuck in other challenges I cannot talk about. Remember the NDA ...
Day IV is not an easy one.
I am sure Shelly will recognize the feeling, yet at the same time have a smile and a little "I told you so" in the back of her mind and wonder why I already show the symptoms at day IV and cannot wait another XXIV.
The Personal challenge.
Why would someone sign up for a 365 days challenge, or even a 30 day challenge like Shelly did here when we get every single day other external challenges thrown at us ?
A most challenging question ... indeed.
Only yesterday I was discussing the latest TED with Lara at the gym on Mastery versus Success and the impact of near wins or just not reaching the perfect circle.
And I believe that is why it is important we try to achieve mastery through near wins.
Just not being able to reach perfection, and continue to strive through our personal challenges.
365 days in a row ... trying to reach mastery, not success.
While the above image I shot when meeting Captain James Tiberius Kirk may to some of you appeal as a great shot, it was in my book a near win and I decided not to post it.
I virtually put it in my mental trash bin.
Sarah Lewis TED post made me (re)visit my near wins and actually share it with you.
So, tell me, what was your near win you encountered recently ?
Footnotes to self:
Day 4 in my personal challenge (a difficult one).

Stay tuned and leave your near wins in the comments below ...
